MEDINA, OH (WOIO) -  Medina City Schools sent out a phone message to all parents today, notifying them that a first grade teacher at Heritage Elementary School is on voluntary quarantine after having indirect contact with an Ebola patient. 

The teacher visited the same bridal store that Amber Vinson, the Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola, visited during her stay in Northeast Ohio. It doesn't specify if she was in the store at the same time, or sometime after Vinson. 

According to a post on the school's website, the teacher will voluntarily avoid student contact for the next 21 days. She has no signs or symptoms and is not at risk. 

The school says it is just a precautionary measure. 

The Medina County Health Department urges parents to visit their website if they have any questions.
