New York’s governor says two people returning to the state from West Africa where they were exposed to Ebola have agreed to a 21-day home quarantine but show no symptoms of the virus.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Saturday that the state is exercising “an abundance of caution.” Aides say both were in direct contact with people diagnosed with Ebola.

They are expected to arrive in coming days. They’ll be the seventh and eighth people in New York to undergo a voluntary at-home quarantine during the virus’ incubation period.
