Texas Nurse with Ebola Visited Ohio Bridal Store

AKRON, Ohio (AP) _ Health officials say a Texas nurse visited a northeast Ohio bridal store days before being diagnosed with Ebola, and they're asking other people who were there to come forward.  
 
Officials want anyone who visited Coming Attractions bridal shop in Akron between noon and 3:30 p.m. last Saturday to call Summit County Public Health.
 
The store was closed Thursday. Calls to the business and a number listed for the owner rang unanswered.
 
The nurse, 29-year-old Amber Vinson, visited the Akron area last weekend, then flew Monday from Cleveland to Dallas. 
 
Health officials initially said she didn't show symptoms in Ohio but now say they can't rule out the possibility that her illness began Friday or Saturday. People infected with Ebola aren't considered contagious until they have symptoms
