OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The American aid workers brought to Nebraska who were exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone continue to show no symptoms of the deadly virus.

Nebraska Medical Center spokesman Taylor Wilson said Thursday that all five of the individuals who were brought to Omaha earlier this month for monitoring continue to do well.

Wilson said local health officials will determine when the individuals can be released from monitoring. Ebola has a 21-day incubation period.

The health care workers were exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone when one of their colleagues became ill with the deadly virus. They are all staying on the Nebraska Medical Center’s campus while they are being monitored.

The Omaha hospital treated three patients with Ebola last fall in its specialized biocontainment unit.
