ROYSE CITY, TX — Classes are canceled for two schools in Royse City ISD Friday as an Ebola scare precaution.

According to a letter sent home to parents, a health care worker who treated one of the Ebola-stricken nurses, lives in a home with students who attend Davis Elementary and Ruth Cherry Intermediate School.

“This person has been classified as low risk. As a symptom-free person, there is no risk to anyone in their household or to anyone in their household attending school,” the statement reads.

It went on to say, “However, in an abundance of caution, this person has voluntarily chosen to keep any students in the household

home for the required isolation period.  Neither the individual nor the students in the household are symptomatic.”

This comes after three Central Texas schools and schools in Ohio closed as a precaution Thursday.

Two Belton ISD students were on the same Frontier flight from Cleveland to DFW with Amber Vinson, the second nurse diagnosed with Ebola.

The students are not showing any symptoms, but they will remain home for 21 days.
