The governors of New Jersey and New York have issued a mandatory quarantine for those travelers who have been treating or otherwise in contact Ebola-infected patients in West Africa.
One healthcare worker has already been isolated after she developed a fever on Friday, New Jersey state health officials said. The unnamed worker did not have symptoms upon first arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport, but officials quarantined her after she acknowledged that she was in contact with infected patients in Sierra Leone. The fever developed after she had been quarantined.
She is currently being evaluated at Newark’s University Hospital, the New Jersey Department of Health announced in a statement.
