Amber Joy Vinson, the 29-year-old Dallas nurse who caught Ebola while treating the late Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, is claiming that she contacted the CDC to advise them of her plans to fly to another state.

Vinson says she even advised the CDC that she had a low-grade fever, and was given clearance..

Just before 4:00 p.m. Vinson was transported by ambulance to Dallas Love Field Airport to be taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment. Around 4:40 p.m. Vinson was taken out of the ambulance on a stretcher, but then stood and walked up the steps and onto the specialized CDC Gulfstream III airplane. The plane began to taxi onto the runway at 5:00 p.m. and less than four minutes later was in the air. Officials with the CDC said Vinson’s condition is clinically stable. h/t dfw.cbslocal
