Passengers aboard a Delta Air Lines flight from Detroit were kept from disembarking in Chicago for about three hours after one person was suspected of carrying a disease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the passenger was evaluated shortly after the plane landed Thursday afternoon at Midway International Airport. The CDC said emergency medical personnel determined the woman's rash was not related to monkey pox, which had been suspected.

In its statement, the CDC said the woman was cleared but advised to seek medical care.
The incident occurred on Delta Flight 3163, which landed about 3:45 p.m.
