New York City doctor, Craig Spencer, who has tested positive for Ebola rode the A, L, and No. 1 subway lines, went running, used an Uber livery cab, and went to a bowling alley in Williamsburg called the Gutter Wednesday night, said Dr. Mary Bassett, the city’s health commissioner.

He also visited the High Line park in Manhattan at some point, she said. He began exhibiting a fever and diarrhea on Thursday morning.

In a statement, Doctors Without Borders said that the doctor and his fiance on Thursday morning followed guidelines by reporting his fever immediately to the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organization, which then alerted the city’s Health Department.

“Today, EMS HAZ TAC Units transported a patient to Bellevue Hospital who presented a fever and gastrointestinal symptoms,” Basset said in a statement earlier Thursday before the diagnosis. “As a further precaution, beginning today, the Health Department’s team of disease detectives immediately began to actively trace all of the patient’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk. The Health Department staff has established protocols to identify, notify, and, if necessary, quarantine any contacts of Ebola cases.” h/t myfoxny
