The New York Giants are getting briefed on the Ebola virus ahead of their trip to Texas to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The game will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Thomas Eric Duncan recently died from Ebola at a Dallas hospital, and two female health care workers at the hospital have tested positive for the virus after treating Duncan. According to the Post, the state is preparing for the possibility of additional cases.
The second health care worker to contract Ebola traveled to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport from Cleveland on Monday, the day before she showed symptoms.
"Our athletic trainers and team physicians have been briefed on the scope of the Ebola virus disease," said senior vice president of communications Pat Hanlon. We have distributed a fact sheet to our employees and distributed similar information to our players electronically this morning."
The NFL is also working with Duke University’s Infectious Disease Department, according to the Post.
The Cowboys (5-1) have three straight home games starting with Sunday's game against the Giants (3-3).
