DALLAS (AP) - Hazardous materials experts have decontaminated common areas of a Dallas complex where a second hospital worker infected with Ebola lives.

Officials say crews later Wednesday will clean the apartment of the woman now isolated at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Her name and job duties haven’t been released but hospital authorities say she cared for Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, who died Oct. 8.

Dallas spokeswoman Sana Syed (SEN’-ah say-ED’) says doors, hallways and railings at the second worker’s complex have been cleaned. The process was completed just hours after the announcement early Wednesday of a second woman contracting Ebola.

Syed says complex residents are free to come and go as they wish.

The first health care worker to contract Ebola, nurse Nina Pham, has been hospitalized since last weekend.
