Centers for Disease Control officials say the Texas nurse with Ebola may have been experiencing symptoms several days before she checked herself into a Dallas hospital.
"We had started to look at the possibility that she had symptoms going back as far as Saturday, (Oct. 11)," Braden told reporters. "This has to do with the bridal shop. Some more information that has come through recently says we can't rule out that she might have had the start of her symptoms on Friday."
Frontier Airlines said Vinson—who reported a slight fever before her flight on Monday—did not exhibit noticeable symptoms on either flight. The company has reportedly placed the crew members onboard Vinson's return flight on a 21-day paid leave and the airplane was cleaned—but not before flying to Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale.
According to WCPO, eight people in Ohio are now under quarantine. The bridal store reportedly closed down as a "precautionary measure," and at least three Texas schools and two Ohio schools closed down Thursday after staff members and students were linked to Vinson.
