BOSTON:Officials quarantine Braintree medical facility, isolate with possible Ebola protocol

Harvard Vanguard Medical Center in Braintree is being quarantined and a patient isolated outside the facility with a possible case of Ebola, officials said.

“Ebola protocol is in place,” said Joe Zanca of Braintree Fire Department. “We don’t know if he actually has Ebola.”

William Cash, also a Braintree firefighter, said “no one is leaving.”

The patient recently traveled to West Africa, and is being isolated based on his medical complaints, fire officials said.

Police, fire officials, and emergency medical services responded to the scene, along with a hazmat team, Zanca said.
