Dallas - United Airlines says it is notifying passengers who were on flights with a man later diagnosed with Ebola and telling them how to contact federal health officials.
United said on Thursday it was also telling passengers that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes the man could not have spread the disease during the flights because he was not showing symptoms and was not yet contagious.
