ATLANTA (AP) Health officials say a CDC staff member who worked in close proximity to someone with the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa has been flown by charter jet back home to Atlanta to monitor potential symptoms. <br />
U.S. Centers for Disease Control spokesman Tom Skinner said Thursday that the staffer had low-risk contact with someone who tested positive for the virus. Skinner says the CDC worker isn't sick, isn't showing signs of illness and poses no risk to others. <br />
The CDC says the staffer worked within three feet of the ill international health worker in the same room for a prolonged period. <br />
Skinner says the staffer arrived in Atlanta on Wednesday and is at home. Skinner says the worker's temperature will be monitored for 21 days as a precaution.
