AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Health officials say one person in Ohio has been voluntarily quarantined after having household contact with the Texas nurse who recently visited Ohio and was later diagnosed with Ebola.

Summit County officials say the individual self-quarantined Tuesday after the family of 29-year-old nurse Amber Joy Vinson was notified that she had developed Ebola symptoms.

Vinson was visiting family in the Akron area and flew back to Dallas on Monday before being diagnosed with Ebola.

Summit County Medical Director Marguerite Erme said at a news conference Wednesday that the quarantined person hasn’t left home since Tuesday and that health officials will be monitoring the person’s condition. No name was released.

Erme says that the person is not showing symptoms and that there is no risk to the public.
