Public health officials at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha released an individual they had been monitoring for Ebola symptoms for over two weeks Saturday morning, according to a medical center news release.

The release stated the individual never developed the disease and poses no risk to the public.

"This person completed the required 21-day monitoring period and did not develop symptoms of the disease," Dr. Ted Cieslak, an infectious diseases specialist at Nebraska Medicine, said in the release.
