A person who recently traveled to Nigeria has been placed in isolation at a Washington D.C. hospital with Ebola-like symptoms, NBC Washington reports.

"In an abundance of caution, we have activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including isolating the patient," Howard University hospital spokesperson Kerry-Ann Hamilton in a statement. "Our medical team continues to evaluate and monitor progress in close collaboration with the CDC and the Department of Health."

From NBC Washington:

That person has been admitted to the hospital in stable condition, and is being isolated. The medical team is working with the CDC and other authorities to monitor the patient's condition.

The news comes one day after an American cameraman working for NBC was diagnosed with the disease and three days after a man tested positive for Ebola at a Dallas hospital
