“As of right now we do not have a case of Ebola in Ohio, but we are going to be working to identify any close contacts that the individual was in contact with in the state,” said Dr. Mary DiOrio, ODH’s state epidemiologist. ODH is working with the Summit County health department right now, but may work with others as well, she said.

Vinson traveled by air from Cleveland to Dallas on a Frontier Airlines flight 1143 on Monday and may have been contagious at the time, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the airline.

The CDC is now working to notify passengers on the flight. No word on what is being done for the others whom had close contact with Vinson.
