Metro Bus Passenger Wearing a Mask says “Don’t mess with me; I have Ebola.”

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials don’t believe the rider has Ebola and believe the incident was a hoax, spokeswoman Sarah Kissell Garrett said.

The passenger, who vanished in the confusion, was wearing a mask when he and the woman entered the bus at Venice Boulevard and Hoover Street about 1:45 p.m., he said.

He and the woman remained on the bus — Line 33, which travels along Venice Boulevard — for several minutes before he announced that he had Ebola.
