ARLINGTON, Va. -- The 22 passengers riding on the tour bus with a woman who was being evaluated for possibly having Ebola have been released after doctors said that the woman does not have deadly virus.

It all started when the woman vomited in a parking lot near the Pentagon Friday morning and told EMS workers she had recently visited Sierra Leone -- an African country near others dealing with the outbreak.

The Defense Department said that “out of an abundance of caution” they shut down streets and went into full medical emergency mode.

But by late Friday, officials said while "the woman had displayed symptoms consistent with the virus" they were "confident that she does not have Ebola."
