Woman with Ebola Flew on Frontier Airlines from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2014 at 11:57 AM

The latest U.S. patient to test positive for Ebola reportedly flew on Frontier airlines on Monday from Cleveland to Dallas.

The CDC and Frontier say the woman, who has been identified as 26-year-old Amber Joy Vinson, did not show any symptoms until Tuesday, Oct. 14, the day after her flight with 132 other passengers. 

The CDC is asking all passengers on Frontier flight 1143 to call 1-800-CDC-INFO to determine if they are at risk of contracting the virus.

Frontier says the plane "received a thorough cleaning per our normal procedures" before it was returned to service on Oct. 14, but that was before Frontier received notice of Vinson's condition.

WOIO reporter Paul Orlousky tweeted this morning that the plane in question is on a remote runway at Cleveland Hopkins being re-cleaned. 

The woman also flew from Dallas to Cleveland on Oct. 10.

The WHO says Ebola's incubation period is two to 21 days.

More to come as the story develops.
