CEBU CITY, Philippines—The two overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), who returned to the Philippines but failed to declare that their port of origin was an Ebola-stricken African country, had been cleared to go home after they had been put in quarantine.

The two OFWs were allowed to leave the quarantine area on Jan. 5.
