Twenty-three individuals are currently being monitored in the state of Washington for Ebola, Fox News reported Friday.
Health officials say "there is a low risk for people in Washington," and the 23 people are being monitored because they recently traveled to either Guinea or the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), according to Fox News . Both of these countries, located in West Africa, have recently experienced outbreaks of this rare but incredibly deadly disease, Fox News reported.
Washington state health officials will monitor the individuals for 21 days after returning to the United States, according to Fox News.

In February, Guinea declared an Ebola epidemic after three died and others were infected with the disease.
"The government reassures the population that all measures are being taken to stem this epidemic as quickly as possible. It invites the populations of the affected areas to respect hygiene and prevention measures and to report to health authorities in the presence of suggestive signs," said Remy Lamah, the country's Minister of Health, according to the Associated Press .
