GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Greenville County schools will be screening new students for Ebola before they enroll.

The school district said in a statement it will begin questioning parents of guardians of new students to determine whether the student has “significant risk factors.”

The school district says parents will be asked a series of questions to find out whether the student or family have been to an area affected by the deadly virus.

Any student identified as being at risk through the questions would have to be cleared medically before enrolling.

The district also wants parents of current students to notify them if their family or child travels to any area currently affected by the virus. That currently includes the West African countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
