ATLANTA, Ga. –  Ten Americans who may have been exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone are headed back to the U.S. on board a private jet.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the ten, who treated an infected medical worker, will be monitored for symptoms of the disease.

They’ll stay at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, the National Institutes of Health in Maryland or at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

The ten work for Partners in Health, a charity with 2,000 people in West Africa.
