Ebola: U.S orders mandatory quarantine
Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie want those who enter the U.S from West Africa to be quarantined.
NEW YORK - The governors of New York and New Jersey have ordered a mandatory quarantine for all medical workers arriving into the United States from countries affected by Ebola in West Africa.
Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie are ordering all people entering the U.S through JFK and New York airports who had direct contact with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea to be quarantined for 21 days.
Cuomo says a voluntary quarantine is not enough because this is considered to be too serious a public health situation.
The rapid escalation of screening measures comes after officials have gone to great lengths to ease public anxiety over the spread of the virus in the U.S.
