Nine in Connecticut Being Watched for Possible Ebola

Public health authorities in Connecticut are keeping a close eye on nine people in the state to make sure they are not infected with Ebola, The New York Times reported.

The nine, some of whom had traveled to West Africa, might have come into contact with the Ebola virus. They have been instructed to stay home. None of these individuals are showing symptoms. Three are reportedly students at Yale University while the remaining six are said to be members of one family, the Times reported.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy declared a public health emergency in the state authorizing public health commissioner Jewel Mullen to place persons suspected of carrying the highly contagious disease in quarantine.

In this instance, the nine individuals voluntarily agreed to stay home for 21 days though the family was officially quarantined later, according to the Hartford Courant.

"The governor has asked the department to act out of an abundance of caution, and that's exactly what they are doing, a Malloy spokesman said, the Times reported.

Malloy, a Democrat, is running for re-election against Republican Tom Foley.
