How do you get the Ebola Virus? I will tell you. Or you can read about it here.

If the person you come in contact with is already infected then:

You can catch Ebola if you come in contact with: (blood, vomit, semen, sweat, spit, pee, poop, other fluids.)
AND Contaminated Objects: (needles, medical equipment)
OR Infected Animals: (by contact with blood, fluids, or infected meat)
Early Symptoms:  Fever, Headache, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Unexplained Bleeding or Bruising, and Muscle Pain.

Ebola only spreads when a person is sick. A patient must have symptoms to spread the disease to others.

After 21 days if exposed person does not develop symptoms they will not become sick with Ebola.
