The last person who was being monitored for Ebola in Texas is to be cleared from twice-daily temperature checks by the end of Friday. In all, 177 people, including family members, health-care workers and acquaintances, were on a “watch list” for 21 days, which is the generally accepted incubation period of the Ebola virus. None of those nearly 200 people ever showed signs of the illness.
Texas also recently cleared the people who were being monitored in Texas because they were passengers on one of the Dallas-Cleveland flights that carried a Dallas health care worker before she was diagnosed with Ebola.
