OregonLive.com is reporting tonight that the Liberian woman hospitalized for observation on Friday with a self-monitored fever does not have Ebola.

A Liberian woman who was hospitalized Friday in Milwaukie over fears she has Ebola does not have the disease, health care officials said on Sunday.

"Based on test results and an evaluation of her clinical condition, I'm pleased to say there are no cases of Ebola in Oregon," Dr. Paul Lewis, the tri-county health officer, said in a news release from Providence Health & Services. "The CDC has advised us that no further testing is required."
