The Iowa Department of Public Health said Thursday that 13 travelers who were in West African countries are being monitored in Iowa for Ebola.

The travelers were in Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea in the last 21 days and are now in Iowa.

Twelve had low risk of having been exposed to Ebola in those countries health officials said, so they are being allowed to resume normal activities.

IDPH has ordered them to take their temperature twice a day and report their health status to public health.

One person had some risk of being exposed to Ebola, and has been quarantined. The person was told to stay at home and take their temperature twice daily, including at least once with a public health official observing.

At this time, there is no risk to public safety, health officials said.
