DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas County official says a state order was issued to keep four people in a apartment where an Ebola patient was staying because they weren’t complying with requests to remain in the home.

Judge Clay Jenkins said Thursday that the four “were noncompliant with the request to stay home.” He did not specify where they went.

The four are quarantined to prevent the spread of disease. Thomas Eric Duncan was staying at the apartment before he was hospitalized with the Ebola virus. Health officials say he contracted the virus in his home country of Liberia before arriving in the U.S. on Sept. 20.

The residents of the apartment are not allowed to receive visitors. Officials say several days of food have been delivered to them.
