WEDNESDAY, Oct. 22, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Public health officials plan to actively monitor all U.S. residents returning home from one of the three Ebola-affected nations in West Africa, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday.

The new monitoring program, which starts Monday, will require anyone back from Liberia, Guinea or Sierra Leone to check their temperature twice a day and report back daily to their local public health department, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said in a Wednesday press conference.
