Liberian detainee at Kenosha County Jail being monitored for Ebola

Authorities say there's no indication that she's sick or has been in contact with anyone who is sick, but concerns are high because the woman is from Liberia.
\"We have this person in isolation right now and we are monitoring them several times a day just to make sure this person doesn't show any type of disease,\" said Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth.
The Kenosha County Jail serves as a regional holding facility for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, so it's not uncommon to see immigration detainees from all over the world.
It's unclear how long the woman will be in Kenosha, but Beth says he's confident the woman poses no immediate threat.
