Emergency medical officials responded to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas on Friday because a passenger was reportedly showing some Ebola-like symptoms, NBC Los Angeles reports.

Christine Crews, a spokeswoman for the airport, told KSNV-TV that the flight was quarantined "after reports that a passenger who had recently traveled in Africa vomited on board the aircraft." However, officials later said the sick passenger does not meet the criteria for Ebola.
