RESTON, Va. (AP) — The return of two Americans infected with Ebola is reminding residents of a northern Virginia community about a scare 25 years ago that permanently linked their town’s name to the virus.

In 1989, a monkey house in the town of Reston was the site of an outbreak of the Ebola virus. Dozens of monkeys died, and several workers at the facility tested positive with the virus.

The outbreak prompted a full-tilt response from Army scientists at Fort Detrick, Maryland, and the Centers for Disease Control to contain the outbreak. As it turned out, the strain of Ebola that broke out in Reston did not make humans sick. The strain is now known as Ebola-Reston.

The site of the old monkey house is now home to a daycare center.
