Woman quarantined in NJ shows no signs of Ebola
TRENTON (AP) -- New Jersey health officials say a woman who arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport from West Africa has tested negative for Ebola in a preliminary test.
The New Jersey Department of Health says the woman remains under observation and in isolation at University Hospital in Newark on Saturday. She is a health care worker who arrived Friday from West Africa, where she had contact with Ebola patients. She initially showed no symptoms of the virus but later developed a fever.
The woman became the first traveler to be quarantined under an Ebola watch in New York and New Jersey. The governors of those states earlier Friday announced a mandatory 21-day quarantine of medical workers and other airline passengers who have had contact with Ebola victims.
