A passenger arriving at Newark Airport from West Africa on Tuesday was being evaluated for possible Ebola.
The flier was transported to a hospital when a screening detected symptoms similar to those from exposure to the virus, according to The Star-Ledger.
“During the enhanced screening process . . . an individual was identified as reporting symptoms or having a potential exposure to Ebola,” CDC spokeswoman Carol Crawford said.
