WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - The mayor of a suburban Cleveland city put two workers on leave and ordered city hall closed for cleaning because of Ebola concerns.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/1DhQdbi ) reports that Warrensville Heights Mayor Brad Sellers took the steps for Friday because the husband of one of the workers had a co-worker who was on the plane that carried a nurse later diagnosed with the virus.

And he said a separate worker “may have” been in contact with a family member of the nurse, Amber Vinson, who was diagnosed after flying from Cleveland to Dallas.

Sellers says he took the steps as a precaution because of the fear and rumors swirling around the situation. He said there was no reason to believe anyone at city hall was infected.
