Now that Dr. Craig Spencer has tested positive for Ebola in NYC, everyone (especially those in the city) are wondering where he went, what he touched and who he came in contact with when he could have potentially been contagious.

Even though health officials have stated no one infected with Ebola is contagious until they are showing symptoms, that can seem a little fuzzy, considering someone could have a slight temperature before it gets bad enough to look into. But Spencer apparently spent most of the time in his apartment once he got back to New York. “Most of the time” being the operative part of that statement.

 

Mashable put together this map of all the places Spencer was since he returned from Guinea. They also included these details of his whereabouts:

Friday, Oct. 17

    1. Spencer arrives at Kennedy International Airport. He had left Guinea, where he had treated Ebola patients, on Oct. 14, and traveled through Europe. It’s not known how he got home from the airport.

Oct. 18 to Oct. 22

    1. Spencer’s home is in Harlem. He took his temperature twice a day, and “was taking precautions on his own,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

At some point during this time, Spencer went on a three-mile jog, “a sign that he was feeling quite well,” Bassett said.

    1. Also at some point, Spencer rode the 1 subway line, shown in red. It’s not known where he went. Mayor Bill de Blasio has emphasized that even people riding in the same subway car could not have caught the Ebola virus because Spencer did not have symptoms.

Tuesday, Oct. 21

Spencer started feeling “somewhat tired,” Bassett said.

Wednesday, Oct. 22

    1. Spencer “may have gone to a restaurant,” Bassett said, along the way to his next destination.
    2. He visited the High Line in Manhattan, a park built above the streets on a section of an old elevated train line.
    3. He took the A subway line (6a, shown in blue) and the L line (6b, shown in gray) as he went across the East River to Brooklyn.
    4. Spencer attended a bowling party with friends at a vintage bowling alley called The Gutter in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. “He did bowl,” Bassett said.
    5. At some point, Spencer got a ride in an Uber car. Initial reports said he took an Uber to the bowling alley, but Bassett said he took the subway; it’s possible he took the car home instead. Officials located the Uber driver and determined he was not at risk.

Thursday, Oct. 23

  1. After coming down with a fever sometime between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., Spencer was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, where he was put in isolation.

In total, officials determined that Spencer had been in close contact with his fiancée and two friends; they have been quarantined.
