The following is a statement from Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates about the quarantine of a patient in Braintree:

A patient who had been to Liberia presented himself today at the Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates Braintree practice complaining of headache and muscle aches. Out of an abundance of caution we immediately notified authorities and the patient was securely removed from the building and put into an ambulance now headed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The building was closed briefly but has now re-opened. We are working closely with the Department of Public Health who will determine next steps.
