Sick Traveler Tests New Jersey Ebola Readiness

New screening of airline passengers coming from West Africa for the Ebola virus is being tested early.

A man arriving at Newark Liberty Airport on Tuesday was taken to University Hospital as a precautionary measure.

NBC New York reports that a man landed in Newark Tuesday afternoon after traveling from Liberia to Brussels. He was screened at customs, and was found to have a fever. The man was said to be evaluated “as if he had Ebola.”

University Hospital told visitors it was on “lockdown,” according to NJ.com. Through Tuesday afternoon the emergency room entrance at the hospital was blocked off with yellow tape, a parking garage attendant wasn’t letting cars enter the facility, and departing cars were only allowed to drive certain streets.

University Hospital was partly open for patients on Wednesday.
