One of 57 evacuees from the virus zone in China who is being held in quarantine in Nebraska was taken to a special isolated unit of an Omaha medical center to undergo testing after developing a mild cough. Officials with Nebraska Medicine said Friday the woman’s symptoms are “extremely mild” and that the testing is being done out of an abundance of caution. The patient will be taken to the University of Nebraska Medical Center campus’ federally funded National Quarantine Unit to be tested for COVID-19.

UPDATE: Medical test results show there is no sign of the virus in the patient.
