Can You Get Ebola From a Bowling Ball?
Although the surface of a shared bowling ball is a likely place to find germs — and some people avoid bowling for this very reason — it is extremely unlikely that Ebola could be passed that way. There is no evidence that it has been passed, as colds or flu sometimes are, by touching surfaces that someone else touched after sneezing into their hand. Ebola is normally passed through contact with blood, vomit or diarrhea.
If someone left blood, vomit or feces on a bowling ball, and the next person to touch it did not even notice, and then put his fingers into his eyes, nose or mouth, it might be possible.
In case you missed it. "There is no evidence that it has been passed"

Yet one person that came back from Africa with ebola claims that he got it while disinfecting a car that had an ebola positive person in it.

And this practice does two things it makes people suspicious and it puts MSF/DWB in danger. That being said, however, it has not been unheard of.

apparently you would have to see the feces,vomit on the ball and touch it....but...they didn't say anything about the HOLES in the ball that you put your FINGERS in???? they are half guessing and hoping for the best, I think,...

Made it upstate. I guess considering it was a positive test result I was correct in leaving. Good move on my part.
Halloween is coming up, that worries me. Congregations, the sniffles, people handing out candy face to face. Yes this will be real fun....
