Pauline Cafferkey, who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, has been flown to an isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London, the Department of Health has confirmed.
Greater Glasgow Health Board said the virus is present in Ms Cafferkey but said it was left over from the original infection.
It is not thought to be contagious.
The 39-year-old nurse has been flown back to an isolation unit at the Royal Free.
Ms Cafferkey was diagnosed with Ebola in December after returning to Glasgow from Sierra Leone, via London.
She spent almost a month in an isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital at the beginning of the year.
There is not yet any information about her condition, but government sources said the transfer to the specialist unit was a "highly precautionary process''.
