Crews are preparing to transport a patient exhibiting “signs and symptoms of Ebola” from a Frisco CareNow to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

The CareNow is located in the 300 block of Main Street. Patients are currently being held inside the clinic as crews at the scene examine staff and others inside the building.

“The patient claims to have had contact with the Dallas ‘patient zero,'” according to a statement from Dana Baird-Hanks, a spokeswoman with the city of Frisco.

According to a statement from the clinic, the patient answered “yes” on a form “regarding travel to West Africa.”

Police and fire units have surrounded the facility, taped off a gray SUV and isolated other patients at the facility.
