Eight people in Michigan are being monitored for the Ebola virus according to the Detroit Free Press.
The Michigan Department of Community Health confirmed the news on Tuesday. The eight people are located in different counties throughout the state, but the locations haven’t been released by the department. None of the eight have showed symptoms of the disease. CDC guidelines say people should be monitored for 21 days.

State spokesman spokeswoman Angela Minicuci says the individuals are being monitored for various reasons including their travel history or people with whom they have been in contact.  She says there's still an extremely low risk of Ebola in Michigan.  There's no word when the monitoring began, but state officials just revealed the screening this week.
