Oregon Heath Authority officials say they are monitoring six Oregonians who recently returned from trips to areas of West Africa where Ebola is present. Officials say that all six are considered low risk. They are all calling in their body temperatures twice a day. They are being monitored for 21 days. It takes a maximum of 21 days for an exposure to Ebola to create symptoms which include Fever, Severe headache, Muscle pain, Weakness, Fatigue, Diarrhea,
Vomiting, Abdominal (stomach) pain, Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising).
All six persons being monitored live in the Portland area. Again they are considered low risk. The protocol is the same protocol that the Federal Centers for Disease Control have prescribed for all 50 states.
