Joaquim Saweka, the WHO representative in Uganda, told reporters in the capital Kampala that everyone known to have had contact with Ebola victims has been isolated. Ugandan health officials have created an “Ebola contact list” with names of people who had even the slightest contact with those who contracted Ebola. The list now bears 176 names

The scary thing is that Soviets apparently spent a lot of time and money locating Ebola strains and then working to make it even more virulent.
There are a few good books out there on the subject.
Richard Preston, author of 'The Hot Zone' has written several.

I believe there was a case of Reston ebolavirus (REBOV) in Virginia in which South American primates were infected by African primates which they had no physical contact with and it is still assumed in this case transmission was airborne.
I remember reading the article about this many many years ago and it made an impression on me because I found it strange that when airborne ebola was finally discovered it just happened to be (coincidently, of course), so close to Washington D.C.
