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:

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.
