ARLINGTON, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — The Pentagon is now the latest place to suffer from an Ebola scare.
Arlington News reports that a woman began vomiting while on a tour bus at the Pentagon. Pentagon Force Protection Agency spokesman Chris Layman told Arlington News that Arlington County’s hazmat team was called out when they learned that the woman was recently in Africa.
The hazmat team was called out of “a complete abundance of caution,” Layman told Arlington News.
According to Arlington News, a portion of the Pentagon South parking lot has been cordoned off and that police are telling non-Pentagon employees to avoid the surrounding area.
The woman has been transported to Virginia Hospital Center.
This scare comes as Obama administration officials said a Dallas health care worker who handled a lab specimen from a Liberian man who died from Ebola is self-quarantined on a Caribbean cruise ship and is being monitored for infection.
