LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A patient was reportedly in isolation in a Clinton hospital with low risk for Ebola on Thursday.
Kerry Krell with the Arkansas Health Department said they were notified Thursday morning about the patient by the Ozark Health Medical Center.
According to a tweet by the Health Department later in the day, the patient has been cleared. There are no suspected or confirmed cases in Arkansas.
What initially caught the attention of the medical staff at Ozark Health Medical Center was the travel history and symptoms of the patient. Upon further testing and consultation with the health department, it was later determined that the patient was not at an increased risk for Ebola. The department, however, still took precautionary measures.
