The children, who attend four separate schools, apparently had contact with the man over the weekend and then returned to classes this week. But school officials have said they showed no symptoms.
girlfriend Quarantined, but Upbeat
Regarding the current case, FrontPageAfrica has learned that the patient’s girlfriend is said to be upbeat but is currently under along with some eight other members of her household in Dallas, Texas. “She had just sent for him from Liberia and he took sick. The CDC has been visiting her every day since he was hospitalized Sunday. Her job has been supportive but she has been asked to stay home only as a precaution. So she remains under quarantine along with eight persons in the house where she lives. The CDC will keep coming to her and making sure she’s OK for the next 21 days," a family source told FrontPageAfrica Wednesday.

What comes to mind is the memory of President Bush shortly before he left office talking about (teary eyed) some terrible virus that could hit the US and overwhelm our ability to cope with. I recall discussions on ATS years ago on that subject.
Where do you get off deciding this guy was just visiting family and even if so, are you even remotely aware what daily life is like in LIBERIA,
And yeah i'll get into the deformation of character of a sick man, he's a piece of trash, your in the middle of an outbreak of ebola and you travel if your not in health care? that's an ill informed, careless, waste of a human being, I'm supposed to believe this moron didn't know he had encountered anybody with Ebola when they are burying people left and right? Or that he wasn't just trying to save his own skin while putting people at risk? What he obviously cared about was getting the hell out of Liberia which I can echo the sentiment and understand but it still doesn't make him a decent person. The containment in Africa is ONE location, it's not America, the boogey man in this case is absolutely REAL
But school officials have said they showed no symptoms.
The superintendent says the students didn't exhibit any symptoms.
"So, the odds of them passing on any sort of virus is very low," Miles said.
Miles says the schools have been staffed with additional health employees as a precaution and to answer questions.
Thompson says each of those children have been kept home and are under precautionary monitoring.
