Missionaries return to US and Ebola quarantine
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Three missionaries who worked with patients infected with the Ebola virus in Liberia are back in the United States, spending the next several weeks on the campus of a North Carolina-based mission.
SIM USA said in a news release Monday that all three were healthy and showed no signs of infection. However, they are being held in quarantine at least three weeks dating from the time the missionaries were last exposed to people infected with the virus.
They will be spending those weeks in motor homes on a portion of the Charlotte-based group's 90-acre campus not far from the South Carolina line.
Among the missionaries who returned is David Writebol, whose wife, Nancy, remains in isolation in an Atlanta hospital after she was returned to the United States for treatment last week.
