A Texas middle school is on Ebola alert after it was discovered that the parents of two students who attend the school were on board the Frontier Airlines flight with Ebola victim Amber Joy Vinson.
Vinson became the second Dallas nurse to be diagnosed with Ebola having been in contact with patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan. A day before she was diagnosed, Vinson flew on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas.
Infowars reporter Joe Biggs contacted Schrade Middle School, which is located in Rowlett, to confirm that students whose parents were on the flight had attended the school this week.
School counselor Judy Coleman confirmed to Biggs that the school was at the center of an Ebola alert, although she seemed unsure about reports that CDC officials were on the scene.
Coleman also confirmed that the school was undergoing “deep cleaning” as a precaution in response to the alert, but that students were in class today and would also attend school tomorrow.
A bridal store visited by Vinson over the weekend also closed its doors today in response to the scare.
In a related development, a patient admitted to a hospital in Connecticut suffering from Ebola-like symptoms is likely not infected with the virus after New Haven Mayor Toni Hart said officials “do not believe it will turn out to be a case.”
