But it is what happened on her way there that has gone viral.

The video above shows Vinson, who is from Northeast Ohio, boarding a flight bound for Georgia Wednesday.

An unidentified man with a clipboard came under the spotlight, when people noticed he was the only one not wearing protective clothing.

The response was quick on social media, with some calling the man “unprotected clipboard dude.”

The CDC says Ebola is not airborne.

Officials say the plain clothes man was not in danger because he was not directly helping Vinson and she was also wearing protective gear.
