DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - DeKalb County schools officials say no new students from Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa may enroll without proper medical documentation and the superintendent’s approval.

Officials said in a statement Thursday that the district has notified all principals and administrators of the policy, which includes new students from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and other areas.

DeKalb education officials say principals and administrators have also been asked to watch for anyone who has a fever and immediately ask them whether they’ve been to an Ebola affected region, or have been in contact with someone who has.

District officials say they’re working in collaboration with the DeKalb County Board of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other state and local education and health agencies.
