JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AP) - Lewis-McChord airmen who fly Ebola aid missions to west Africa are being monitored but are not subject to quarantine.

Cargo plane crews have been flying to Liberia and Senegal since September. They spend fewer than four hours on the ground and do not interact with patients.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1tpgtvU) the Air Force has asked them to monitor and report any flu-like symptoms. So far, none has reported an illness.

Madigan Army Medical Center says a doctor, Paul Bunge, who traveled on his own to Liberia last month is nearing the end of his 21-day quarantine and is expected to return to work soon.
