I don't know if this is someone that treated Thomas Duncan the first time he went to the hospital or after they admitted him. Wouldn't be surprised if we see more cases stemming from being in contact with Duncan.(CNN) — A healthcare worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital has tested positive for Ebola after a preliminary test, the state’s health agency said.

I wish they would stop travel to and from infected countries. These temperature screenings at airports are nothing but a feel good act. Sure they could catch someone with Ebola but only if they are showing symptoms.
I just heard on the news that this person was caring for Duncan after being admitted to the hospital and was wearing full protective gear recommended by the CDC. They were considered a low risk for contracting the disease.
