I'm guessing that the photo was taken after the ambulance left, and the maintenance crew did what they do, not knowing how their lives were about to change.

Patient Z's family could face criminal charges if they violate the Control Order.
Texas health officials have placed the Dallas family of a Liberian national infected with Ebola under quarantine and ordered them not to leave their home or have any contact with outsiders for 21 days without approval of the local or state health department.The "control order" also requires the family of Thomas Eric Duncan to be available to provide blood samples and agree to any testing required by public health officials. Officials said Thursday that the four or five family members could face criminal charges for violating the order, which was delivered to them in writing Wednesday evening.

Duncan's boss claimed he worked for the company for a year or two. Doesn't he know?

Can you catch it if you have already had it?
Imagine, if he survived and was sent back and ended up catching it again.
Generally no. If your immune system somehow successful fends off a virus, it will generate antibodies to quickly deal with that specific mutation of Ebola. If somehow during the replication process the virus mutates, then yes a person has a chance of getting the disease again.

I just heard on Fox News (hey i'm a Neal Cavuto fan, don't judge! LOL) that they just pulled 3 more students out, bringing the total to 8 students.
When my daughter was 3 she was exposed to viral meningitis. The incubation period is roughly the same. I was terrified the entire time. Like barter with God and the Devil terrified. I just can't imagine having to go through that waiting period with ebola.
For the past year, Mr. Duncan had worked as a driver at Safeway Cargo, the Liberian customs clearance agent for FedEx, said Henry Brunson, the company’s manager. In an office with a large FedEx sign outside the building in downtown Monrovia, Mr. Brunson said that Mr. Duncan quit abruptly on Sept. 4, giving no reason. But Mr. Brunson said he knew that Mr. Duncan had family members in the United States as well. “His sister came from the United States and he asked for a day off so that he could go meet her at the Mamba Point Hotel,” Mr. Brunson said, mentioning a hotel popular among foreigners. “He quit a few weeks after that.”
