Two patients have been sent from O’Hare airport to local hospitals to be evaluated for Ebola.

One is a child under observation at the University of Chicago. Federal authorities screened the child and said there were no symptoms of Ebola, or known risk of exposure.

The child is in isolation at the University of Chicago and his family is currently under quarantine.

One is an adult, taken to Rush University Medical Center where doctors have determined that the patient does not have the disease.

WGN’s Dina Bair spoke with staff at Rush about how this incident showed them how they are prepared in the event that a true case of Ebola were to arrive in Chicago.
