Dallas Distributed Fliers Where Louise Troh, Family Were Quarantined

The Dallas Police Department's Office of Community Affairs distributed fliers to neighbors of the Catholic Conference Center in Oak Cliff Tuesday.

The fliers alerted residents that Louise Troh and her family had been staying at the center as a guest of the Catholic Diocese as they were monitored for symptoms of the Ebola virus.

Troh's fiance, Thomas Eric Duncan, was the first person in the U.S. diagnosed with the disease. He died Oct. 8 at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas after spending several nights in her family's apartment.

On the fliers, Dallas city leaders said Troh and her children had been monitored for 21 days and showed no sign of having contracted the potentially deadly disease.

Troh and her children may remain in Oak Cliff for the next couple of weeks while the city of Dallas and local churches assist the family in finding a new home.

The Troh family is now looking for a new home," the city said. "We thank you for your understanding and for providing privacy and dignity to this family."

In addition to that flier, officials also distributed a second with information about the Ebola virus and what to do if you believe you have symptoms.
