DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A contractor for Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is livid that his supervisor forced him to remove a mask and gloves he wore to work Wednesday.
“One of the supervisors told me I wasn’t allowed to wear that because it’ll cause a panic for people and they’ll start tripping out and stuff,” said Pablo Medina.
He’s frightened after learning the latest Dallas Ebola patient, Amber Vinson passed through an exit where he was working. Medina was helping direct travelers to their gates Monday night.
Vinson flew Frontier Airlines, and most of their ticket agents at DFW Airport were wearing latex gloves Wednesday.
But Medina has claimed airport supervisors told him to take off his protective mask and gloves — or head home.
“It makes me mad, it makes me terrified that they’re denying me to wear safety precautions. And they told me that if go out, they’ll let me go – and that just makes me more mad,” said Medina.
Medina said his supervisor threatened to fire him for being “out of uniform.”
DFW airport spokesperson, David Magana told CBS 11 News that he was aware a contractor had asked about wearing personal protection. But the airport told its contractors that neither the CDC nor local public health authorities recommend that action as an effective or appropriate procedure.

im trying to find a link but no luck yet. my mom said this morning on yahoo she saw an article that talked about ho the minnesota dept of health has discovered that ebola is airborn and that the cdc and who do not have the up to date info.
i dont see how minnesota would be in the know but the cdc would not.
anyway, there is an article floating around somewhere that says that.
