New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo softened a bit on the quarantine for health care workers returning from West Africa. He now says they can do their 21-day quarantine at home and that they will be compensated for lost wages.
Soon after Cuomo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that New Jersey residents can also be quarantined at home (he didn’t address lost income), and that efforts would be made to get non-Jersey residents back to their own states for their quarantine. But once a person leaves New Jersey, I don’t know what jurisdiction Christie would have to impose a quarantine on them if their home state doesn’t have such a requirement.
There’s still a gap between Cuomo/Christie and the Obama Administration, but it’s been narrowed somewhat.
