Two children in Columbus, Ohio, are being tested for Ebola virus disease, after showing fever symptoms. The children, whose names are currently unreleased, are 4 and 6 years old. They recently traveled between Ohio and West Africa, the Columbus Public Health agency said, according to a report by 10TV.

The children were brought to a Columbus hospital early Sunday after they showed fever symptoms. They are being monitored for respiratory illnesses, as well as Ebola, Columbus’ NBC affiliate reported.

Results for the tests are expected Sunday by about 5 p.m. local time (6 p.m. EST). Columbus Public Health confirmed both children are city residents. Health officials had previously been monitoring the children after they returned from West Africa. In dealing with the situation, the local public-health agency said it is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Health Department.
