UT student no longer being monitored for Ebola

A University of Texas student is no longer being monitored for possible Ebola infection.



The student, who remains unidentified, was a passenger on the same Frontier Airlines flight to Dallas as an infected nurse. The nurse has since been successfully treated for the virus.



During the 21 days the student was monitored, he or she had their temperature checked twice daily in compliance with Center for Disease Control guidelines. The monitoring ended at 5 p.m. Nov. 3.



The Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services staff is still monitoring three people who may have come in contact with the Ebola virus due to recent travel to or from the West Africa area. All three are considered low-risk for being infected and are complying with CDC guidelines.
