NEW YORK — The Ebola scare is back in the U.S.  An individual who just returned from West Africa is in isolation at a New York City hospital.

According to PIX 11,  the patient did not have contact with Ebola patients while in West Africa and was not showing symptoms upon return.

But due to the travel history and current symptoms on Tuesday,  the individual was isolated at Bellevue Hospital.

No decision has been made to test for Ebola.

Two Dallas Presbyterian Hospital nurses contracted Ebola while treating Thomas Duncan, the first patient in the U.S. treated for Ebola.

Duncan passed away. Nurses Nina Pham and Amber Vinson were successfully cured.
