WASHINGTON (PIX11) — Obama canceled his Wednesday trip to New Jersey and Connecticut to hold a Cabinet meeting on Ebola, White House officials confirmed.

Obama was scheduled to appear in Union, New Jersey, to help raise funds for Senate Democrats, before heading to a rally for the governor of Connecticut, Dannel Malloy.

The news comes hours after it was revealed that a second Texas health care worker with Ebola took a flight Monday from Cleveland to Dallas before reporting any symptoms.

The CDC is now trying to track down and interview all 132 passengers who were on Frontier Airlines Flight 1143.

The second Dallas health care worker should not have traveled on a commercial flight after treating Thomas Eric Duncan, the ebola patient who later died.

The second patient will be taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment, officials announced Wednesday.
