First JBLM Ebola Monitoring Group Gets The All Clear

Dec 17, 2014

Sixteen people being monitored at Joint Base Lewis-McChord for the Ebola virus have been cleared by medical personnel.  

The 15 service members and one civilian returned last month from a mission to Liberia in support of Operation United Assistance. 

The group celebrated Thanksgiving in isolation during their 21 days of controlled monitoring.  They were checked twice daily for signs of the virus by Army medical personnel.

Officials said none presented any symptoms. 

JBLM is one of five designated bases around the country set up for monitoring.
