(Reuters) – A Dallas bus and train station was closed on Saturday after a report that a woman fell ill at the facility, but the transit authority denied an earlier report that the woman had been on a watchlist for possible exposure to Ebola.

The woman exited a northbound train at the White Rock Station and vomited, leading the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system to close the station as a precaution.

“The person being treated by Dallas Fire Rescue at White Rock Station is NOT on any Ebola watchlist,” Morgan Lyons, a DART spokeswoman, wrote in an email.
