A freelance journalist who was reporting in Liberia returned to Chicago nine days ago and is now being monitored by Chicago health officials for Ebola.
23-year-old Marcus DiPaola says he received a call on Wednesday from the Chicago Department of Public Health and then two nurses arrived to take his temperature.
DiPaola says he was not exposed to the virus during his trip.
He tweeted Friday morning that he 'feels great.'
DiPaola works for the XInhua News Agency and CNC World.
Under CDC protocols, travelers who are not symptomatic must be monitored for 21 days by local health agencies when they return to the U.S. from countries impacted by Ebola.
