Updated Statement on Patient at University Hospital Oct. 26, 2014

The patient remains isolated and under observation in a climate-controlled, indoor, extended care area in a building adjacent to the hospital. A CDC team has toured the facility and consulted on site.

Federal, state and University Hospital officials continue to evaluate the patient's medical status. Our primary concern is ensuring the health of the patient and the public.

The patient has computer access, use of her cell phone, reading material (magazines, newspaper) and requested and has received take-out food and drink.

An Assistant Commissioner at the New Jersey Department of Health will be providing another update to her today.
