BALTIMORE (AP)- Maryland officials will require anyone considered to have high-risk exposure to the Ebola virus to stay home until it's confirmed they're Ebola-free.

That's one of the precautionary measures that state officials outlined Monday in their plan to monitor the potential for Ebola from people who come from three West African countries.

People considered to have high-risk exposure are those who've had known, unprotected contact with bodily fluids from someone infected with Ebola. They also would be required to have daily contact with health officials.

People who've had protected exposure to bodily fluids containing Ebola would not be allowed to use public transportation or attend large gatherings.

There have been no cases of Ebola acquired in Maryland.
