Port Authority Bus Terminal has re-opened for regular service after a portion was briefly shutdown Thursday when a passenger said he "may have ebola."

The sick man, arriving into a lower-level terminal that services gates 60 to 85, yelled he might have the highly contagious and deadly disease as he arrived from Detriot, according to NBC4.

Port Authority Bus Terminal announced the closure around 5 p.m.

He was transported to Bellvue, but authorities said there is not indication he is infected with ebola.

The gates were closed "out of an abudance of caution for cleaning," a spokesman for Port Authority Bus Terminal told NBC4.

The terminal was re-opened by 6:15 p.m.
