DALLAS (AP) - Five Dallas schools where students who are under Ebola watch will begin using electronic scanners to check for fevers.

Some of the students at the five schools are under scrutiny after they were exposed to an Ebola-stricken man.

Dallas school district spokesman Andre Riley says the fever-screening monitors will be set up Monday morning in the school nursing stations and will be used to screen for fever any children who show signs of illness.

Unlike with thermometers, the scanners to be loaned the district by Dallas-based Wello Inc. will allow nurses to screen students for fevers without touching them, eliminating the risk of spreading illness or disease.

Riley says the monitors will remain in those schools for the next few weeks.
