The stepdaughter of Texas Ebola victim, Thomas Duncan, who called 911 and rode in the ambulance with the man she calls 'Daddy' has been told she can return to work, MailOnline can reveal. Nursing assistant Youngor Jallah, 35, has been in 'quarantine' in her small Dallas apartment along with her husband, Aaron Yah, 43, and their four children ages 2 to 11 since Thomas Duncan's devastating diagnosis last Monday. MailOnline has reported that Mr Yah, also a nursing assistant, had been told he could return to work at the end of last week
CBS 11 News has learned that two of the four acquaintances closest to Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan are employed at a North Dallas residence facility.
A letter from managers at the Windsor Senior Living Center informed residents and staff that two employees were quarantined, because of their close association with Duncan. The letter went on to stress that there is no risk to anyone at the center.

Dallas County Health and Human Services has told us that community residents, staff members and guests are at no risk for Ebola from these quarantined staff members.
