The Lubbock County Detention Center is monitoring each new inmate for Ebola. The jail started to implement new measures on Friday, the day after EMS and Hazmat responded to a suspected case of Ebola which turned out to be a false alarm. Chief Deputy Cody Scott said the jail is doing this as a proactive measure.
Col. Tony Bauernfeind will assume command of the wing, replacing Brig. Gen. Buck Elton, whose next assignment is director of plans, programs, requirements and assessments at Air Force Special Operations Command headquarters at Hurlburt Field, Florida.
