Update: King County resident tested negative for Ebola

As a follow-up to our blog post on Saturday, the King County resident who had been tested for Ebola does not have the virus, according to the results from the Washington State Public Health Laboratory. By late Sunday afternoon, his symptoms had improved and he was able to go home. Following the CDC’s protocol for anyone arriving from Mali, his health will continue to be actively monitored by our Communicable Disease and Epidemiology staff until he has cleared the time frame in which Ebola could develop.
