TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey health officials say a woman who arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport from West Africa has tested negative for Ebola in a preliminary evaluation.

The New Jersey Department of Health says the woman remains in isolation at University Hospital in Newark on Saturday. She is a health care worker who returned from West Africa, where she had contact with Ebola patients. She showed no symptoms of the virus when she arrived Friday.

The woman became the first traveler quarantined under an Ebola watch in New Jersey and New York. She later developed a fever.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier Friday announced a mandatory 21-day quarantine of medical workers and other airline passengers who have had contact with Ebola victims.
