The bus driver was quarantined and the bus was taken after service after a masked rider yelled, “Don’t mess with me, I have Ebola!”

Metro officials said they are working with Los Angeles County sheriff’s transit authorities to review surveillance footage taken from inside the bus to determine the identity of the masked passenger, who was accompanied by a woman, Metro spokesman Marc Littman said.

The Monday afternoon incident is being investigated as a possible terrorist threat because of the fear it incited, he said.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials don’t believe the rider has Ebola and believe the incident was a hoax, spokeswoman Sarah Kissell Garrett said.[su_csky_ad]

      Masks are not that uncommon depending on air quality in LA.
