A patient exhibiting signs of the Ebola virus was transferred to a Maryland hospital Monday night, according to The Baltimore Sun.

A hospital spokesperson told The Sun that a patient had been transferred to the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore and was being treated in isolation. The spokesperson said the transfer happened at the request of state officials and would not say where the patient was transferring from. 

Monday, Maryland officials outlined an Ebola monitoring plan that includes quarantining high-risk patients for 21 days — those who have been directly exposed to the bodily fluids of an Ebola-infected person, The Associated Press reports.

People with some risk — those that have had contact with Ebola-infected bodily fluids while protected — are being asked to refrain from using public transportation and attending large gatherings, as well as temperature monitoring four times a day and in-person health assessments.

Those with low, but not zero, risk will be required to check their temperature twice a day, according to the AP.
