CDC returns worker home after possible Ebola contact

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 2:18pm

 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staff member has returned to the United States from West Africa by charter flight after the employee had low-risk contact with a health worker who tested positive for Ebola.

The CDC worker was in close proximity to the ill person, but is reported to be healthy and has no symptoms.

Close proximity means that the CDC employee was within three feet of the ill person in the same room for a prolonged period of time.

The returning CDC staff person is rotating back to the United States, as scheduled, from an assignment in West Africa.
