THE STATES MAKING THEIR OWN RULES DOESN’T LOOK SO FAR FETCHED AFTER ALL

sick with feverOn the 17th of October I posted a suggestion by Senator Dick Black, Delegate Mark Berg, MD, and Delegate Bob Marshall (HAVE OUR STATE GOVERNMENTS BECOME WIMPY?). Black, Berg, and Marshall urged Virginia’s governor, Governor Terry McAuliffe, to implement “travel bans similar to those that have been implemented in thirteen African nations which have banned travel from Ebola prevalent areas to their countries.” Unfortunately, McAuliffe ignored them. It appears, however, governors in other states cocked an ear and listened.

Bloomberg reports the following in New York, New Jersey to Quarantine Ebola-Risk Fliers.

New York and New Jersey will quarantine on arrival at the area’s airports anyone who had direct contact with Ebola patients, Governors Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie said.

The stricter rules came shortly after a top U.S. health official said the federal government also was considering tighter measures nationwide that may put anyone returning from Ebola zones into quarantine or under strict monitoring. (continued here)

The New York Times has something similar in Mandatory Ebola quarantines ordered in New York, New Jersey.

New York and New Jersey will automatically quarantine all medical workers returning from Ebola-hit West African countries for 21 days, and the U.S. government is considering the same step after a doctor who treated patients in Guinea came back infected, officials said on Friday.

State health officials will extensively interview all travelers arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

“Increasing the screening process is necessary. I think it reduces the risk to New Yorkers and the residents of New Jersey,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. (continued here)

Does that means that anyone who wants to escape being quarantined in New York or New Jersey will come through Virginia instead? I don’t know, but we may wish to ask Governor McAuliffe what he thinks.
