DALLAS (AP) - Three members of the ambulance crew that transported a man diagnosed with Ebola to a Dallas hospital have tested negative for the virus and are restricted to their homes as health officials monitor their conditions.

Dallas city spokeswoman Sana Syed (SUN’-ah say-ED’) says the Dallas Fire-Rescue EMS crew was tested Tuesday night and sent home. They have not exhibited any symptoms of the virus.

Syed says the man transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday was vomiting when the ambulance arrived.

She says the ambulance crew is among 12 to 18 people health officials are monitoring because they were exposed to the man. Some are members of his family, but not all.

The patient traveled from Liberia on Sept. 19 to visit family in northeast Dallas.
