This just came up here in Atlanta, seems we have a possible inmate in Cobb county being quarantined..all it states is that he recently traveled from Africa.

The thing your 100% right about is the possibility of animal vectors, the reality is we have absolutely no idea what animals can become vectors in North America, we have different mosquito types, but the most worrisome critters would be rats and mice, if rats and mice can carry in the States we are in for some serious problems, end of the union for a time problems. The number of refugees is going to increase and if ONE, ONE Rat in NYC contracts during the winter months your going to have the worst pandemic in Human history.
But that is an if...
As far as the spread from infected people, cleaning a school etc, I don't view that as a big deal, the first thing you'd want to do is seal the windows and raise the heat, relatively easy, bring the school to 100+ degrees inside, the virus wont last anywhere in there more than 48 hrs and that's being generous, sanitize the hot spots, have the janitors come in with gloves and do normal cleaning small amounts of Bleach in the water, it's just not that resilient. A close of a week for a school would be fine...
WFAA image of individuals pressure washing Mr. Duncan’s ebola laced vomit from the pavement/sidewalk. The men are not wearing any biohazard protective clothing or gear and there is a woman walking through the liquid in the parking lot wearing sandles. (wtd)
Here’s another photo of the unprotected worker cleaning up Ebola vomit on the sidewalk with a power washer.
A worker power washes the sidewalk in front of the apartment unit at The Ivy Apartments where a man diagnosed with the Ebola virus was staying in Dallas, Texas October 2, 2014. Up to 100 people may have had direct or indirect contact with the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, and four people have been quarantined in a Dallas apartment, health officials said on Thursday.

Yea, did anyone see the water bottle on the ground next to the guy power washing/aerosolizing ? Is that his water?
Sorry, sarcasm is all I have left.

I was bringing my boys to school this morning, extremely small town in south jersey, anyway, we seen this HUGE CDC truck going in the opposite direction. That was a tad nerve wracking. Just wondering WTH they were doing all the way down here?? Hopefully just passing through. We have heard of only 1 child in our county with possible Ebola, but nowhere around my neighborhood......as I said, I sure hope they were just driving by....
OK so I missed your post, are you saying that there is a possible child ebloa case in New Jersey and now there is a CDC truck passing though?
