Richardson students removed from class after contact with Ebola patient

DALLAS -- Three siblings were taken out of class at Richardson's Wallace Elementary School and evaluated after Dallas County Health and Human Services told the school they came into contact with a man who has Ebola.

Richardson ISD said on its website that the students were removed from class and interviewed by health officials. They all appear to be healthy and do not have symptoms of the Ebola virus.

The students will now be monitored away from the school, as requested by DCHHS.

Thomas Eric Duncan is hospitalized in serious condition after he was diagnosed with Ebola while visiting family in Dallas from his home country of Liberia.

On Thursday the Dallas County Medical Society released a list of the top five things parents need to know about Ebola. See the list here.
