TSA Agent on Leave After Patting Down Ebola Patient at Cleveland Airport

A TSA agent who patted down an Ebola patient at a Cleveland airport is on paid leave as a precaution, 19 Action News reports.

The agency said the agent performed a routine-pat-down of Amber Vinson at Hopkins Airport.

Vinson is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S.

“Out of an abundance of caution, a Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Officer who conducted a routine pat-down of a traveler later reported to be infected with Ebola consulted with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),” the TSA said. “The employee is not reporting any symptoms. The employee was instructed by CDC to self-monitor over the next few days, as a precautionary measure. TSA also has assigned its chief medical officer to our employee to provide additional support.

No Cleveland TSA officer came in direct contact with the infected traveler, as all pat-downs are completed while employees are wearing disposable medical gloves.”
