The state is continuing to monitor residents who may have had contact with a Texas nurse diagnosed with the Ebola virus after returning home following a trip to northeastern Ohio.
The Ebola incubation period can be as long as three weeks, meaning local residents who spent time with Amber Vinson during her Ohio trip will continue to be monitored for 21 days after last contact.
For those who had contact with the nurse on her last day in the area, the incubation period runs through about Nov. 3.
The state said Monday there are now 142 people being monitored in Ohio because of contact or potential contact with Vinson.
Three people have been quarantined in northeastern Ohio.
