A patient with symptoms and a travel history that suggested Ebola is improving at a hospital in Maryland’s Montgomery County, officials said.

“At this time, lab results indicate that this patient has another illness and we do not have a confirmed diagnosis of Ebola,” Shady Grove Adventist Hospital said in a statement.

The development came as Howard University Hospital in Washington said it had isolated a patient that had been to Nigeria and presented Ebola-like symptoms.

Officials at Shady Grove said they followed federal guidelines in handling their patient, and are working with county officials.

“We realize that this situation may be unsettling for employees, their families and others in our community,” the statement said. “We are constantly working to ensure the safety of those in our hospital. In the case of this patient, we took and continue to take recommended precautions.”

“Patient privacy laws prevent us from sharing any additional information,” the hospital said.
