The five children currently under quarantine attended school this week at four different Dallas schools.
Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles also revealed that five children from four of the district’s campuses were possibly exposed to the virus.
Miles identified the schools as:
Conrad High School
Tasby Middle School
Hotchkiss Elementary School
Dan D. Rogers Elementary School
Tasby Middle School shares a campus with Jack Lowe Sr. Elementary School, but DISD officials say there are no students at Lowe Elementary who were directly exposed to Duncan.
The superintendent said students at the schools “possibly had contact with the patient” and attended classes at the schools earlier this week. Miles said none of the students have exhibited any symptoms of Ebola at this time.
“So, the odds of them passing on any sort of virus is very low,” Miles said.
The number of people who came into contact with Texas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has zoomed from as many as 18 to 80.
