The New York governor and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ordered Friday that travelers arriving from West Africa at Kennedy and Newark airports who have had direct contact with Ebola patients, including doctors and nurses, must quarantined for 21 days. Travelers to other airports need only have their temperature taken and are then free to go and this statement is a reversal from the governor’s earlier message that these actions could be unenforceable.
Gov. Cuomo said Sunday the mandatory quarantine for health care workers returning from Ebola-stricken West African nations is legally enforceable — somehow.
