Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto is currently determining whether or not a patient in their care has the Ebola virus.
As the healthcare facility tweeted on Wednesday afternoon:
We are currently caring for a patient who is being assessed for Ebola. More updates to come as they are available: http://t.co/WPNPdGJgqD— Sunnybrook Hospital (@Sunnybrook) March 18, 2015
A media release noted the patient was sick with fever and nausea, and had recently travelled to West Africa.
The assessment is taking place in a negative pressure room, which, according to the CDC, helps keep air from circulating throughout the building.
