DALLAS — A woman vomited on the platform at the White Rock Area Rapid Transit (DART) station Saturday afternoon prompting a hazardous materials team to be dispatched from the local firehouse.

Early on reports claimed the woman was on a CDC watch list and had a connection to the infamous “Ivy Apartments” in which the now deceased Thomas Duncan resided after contracting Ebola on a West African trip. However, mainline reports have now flip-flopped, saying the woman was not being monitored by the CDC.

DART announced that the White Rock station will remain closed at this time while HAZMAT teams disinfect the area.

Shockingly DART also added that two of their employees were in fact on a CDC watch list, but were considered low risk at the time the woman vomited on the platform.

Local residents are concerned.
