As Spencer's condition continues to improve, health officials in Oregon are waiting to see if a woman who was hospitalized Friday with Ebola-like symptoms truly has the virus.
John Turner, a spokesman for the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the Los Angeles Times on Saturday that a test had been conducted but the results were not immediately available.
The woman, whose identity has not been made public, recently traveled to West Africa, and has been monitored since her return. She came down with a high fever Friday and was taken to Providence Milwaukie Hospital, just outside Portland, according to Julie Sullivan-Springhetti, a spokeswoman for the Multnomah County Health Department.
On Saturday, the hospital said the woman was considered "low-risk for having the Ebola virus."
Health officials have not said exactly where the woman had been staying or when she returned to the U.S.
Sullivan-Springhetti said Friday that several people who had contact with her will be monitored.
The woman did not go out in public after presenting symptoms on Friday, officials said.
