“During the enhanced screening process . . . an individual was identified as reporting symptoms or having a potential exposure to Ebola, ” CDC spokeswoman Carol Crawford said.

The patient, who had arrived on a United Airlines flight from Brussels, began his trip in Liberia.

The CDC said it is working with local officials to contact other passengers on the flight.

This newest Ebola scare happened on the same day the U.S. Department of Homeland Security imposed tougher restrictions on passengers flying from Ebola-stricken nations, restricting to five the number of airports where they could land, including JFK and Newark.

The new protocol is affecting some 150 daily travelers from Liberia, Sierra ­Leone and Guinea, the NY Post reported.

Enhanced screenings will also be conducted at Washington DC Dulles, Chicago O’Hare and Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta.
