Seems as though Russia is taking more preventive precautions than the US on re-entry. Not sure how reliable this source is, but interesting.

"Some 335 students from high-risk regions in Africa remain in quarantine in Russia for Ebola, a Russian health official said Wednesday.

About 1,000 residents from African countries were put in quarantine for the virus, and the majority have been cleared, the Interfax news agency quoted Chief Sanitary Inspector Anna Popova as saying.

No case of Ebola has been detected in Russia, she said, adding that due to high migration flows the country is not 100-percent guaranteed from the risk.

Russian authorities are prepared not to let the virus spread into the country, with strict medical control imposed at the ports of entry, she said. At Moscow's airports visitors must walk through detectors that sound an alarm if the person's body temperature is above normal.

Russian scientists have been working on a cure for Ebola cure for over 10 years, Popova said.

Russian consumer safety watchdog Rospotrebnadzor places all newly arrived residents from the high-risk countries under a three-week quarantine.

The World Health Organization, in its latest Ebola update issued Monday, said 5,843 cases and 2,803 deaths have been reported in the current outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

In August, Russia sent a group of eight medics to Guinea to help fight the Ebola epidemic."
