(CNN) – The second Dallas nurse who tested positive for Ebola is being treated at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.

But it’s what happened on the way there that has started a frenzy online.

This is video of Amber Vinson boarding a special flight bound for Georgia on Wednesday.

Notice anything out of the ordinary?

Check out the man with the clipboard — he’s the only one not wearing protective clothing.

The response was quick on social media, with some calling the man “unprotected clipboard dude.”

The CDC says Ebola is not airborne.

Officials say the plain clothes man was not in danger because he was not directly helping Vinson and she was also wearing protective gear.
