The patient monitored in Nebraska Medicine for possible exposure to the Ebola virus was released, hospital officials say.
The unidentified American health worker provided medical care in the Democratic Republic of Congo when the exposure could have happened.
Nebraska Medicine said on Saturday that the patient had completed the required 21-day monitoring period and had developed no symptoms.
Hospital spokesman Taylor Wilson said, "This person has never developed the potentially fatal disease and poses no risk to the public."
The patient left Nebraska Medicine and the city of Omaha this morning, telling the hospital that he is facing the KETV.
"Because this individual was symptom-free throughout the entire observation period, it was found that there was no Ebola and therefore it was free to leave our facility and return home," said Drs. Ted Cieslak, infectious disease specialist at Nebraska Medicine.
If the patient had developed Ebola, he would have been transferred to the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit, where three Ebola patients were treated in 201
