A person in Reno is being monitored by health officials for any appearance of the Ebola virus, the Washoe County Health District said Friday.

The individual recently visited three West African nations but had no contact with people suffering from Ebola, the health district said.

“The individual is checking their temperature twice per day and reporting this information, as well as whether they begin to experience any of the symptoms associated with Ebola Virus Disease, to the Health District,” the district said in a statement. “This is a precautionary measure so that if any symptoms present, the person can receive prompt medical attention and be isolated to avoid any transmission of the virus in the community.”

The traveler went through the enhanced entry screening program instituted for all travelers returning from West Africa, which is where the deadly virus has spread to more than 13,000 people and killed 4,818. The virus is only spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person who is showing symptoms.
