A man with possible Ebola symptoms is under evaluation at a Boston hospital, local newspapers reported.
According to the Patriot Ledger, officials evacuated Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates urgent care clinic in Braintree, Mass., while doctors evaluated the situation, according to police radio transmissions from the scene.
The Patriot Ledger reported a man who recently traveled to West Africa was held outside the facility, isolated in an ambulance, until being transported.. The driver of the ambulance was reportedly wearing a hazmat suit and mask.
“There are no cases of Ebola in Massachusetts,” stated Anne Roach, spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Public Health. “DPH has worked with hospitals over the past several months with possible cases of Ebola and they have all been quickly ruled out.”
She did not, however, rule out this possible case.
“Ebola protocol is in place. We don’t know if he actually has Ebola,” Joe Zanca of the Braintree Fire Department told the Boston Globe.
Emergency personnel had the scene cordoned off with no one being allowed in or out, according to the Globe.
