Rutgers coach Kyle Flood addresses team about Ebola
"What I did is, I went online and did some of my own research just to see how it spreads and to educate the team, so we did a little bit of that this morning,'' Flood said following practice Thursday. "I assured them that the plane, when we get on it, will be sanitized and cleaned. From all the information I have, it's transferable through bodily fluids. It's not something you can get just by standing next to somebody.
"You gotta be careful. You gotta make sure your hands are clean, can't share drinks. We'll take all the necessary precautions. But it's not something that will distract us, either.''
Rutgers will take a charter plane to Ohio on Friday, according to the report.
Other sports teams have also been addressed about Ebola in light of the two health care workers testing positive for the virus, including the New York Giants in advance of their trip to Dallas to play the Cowboys.
