Thursday the Primary Children’s Hospital released a statement saying they believe one of their patients may have contracted Ebola during a recent trip to Africa.

Although the Utah Dept. of Health remains skeptical that a patient is actually infected with the Ebola virus, the CDC is taking no chances and is currently running tests to confirm whether the patient actually has the virus or not.

Doctors at the hospital seem to be downplaying the possibility as of now, according to reports.

All U.S. hospitals are now on high alert.
