States follow NY, NJ with strict Ebola policies amid ‘confusing’ federal guidelines

An ongoing behind-the-scenes skirmish between the White House and state governors on how best to handle Ebola cases is becoming even more convoluted as several states announce they are following New York and New Jersey in ordering quarantines and other precautions that go well beyond federal guidelines — and run contrary to Obama administration recommendations.

The many, varying state policies already are sowing confusion, and creating a patchwork of policies. In the case of a nurse returning from Africa, for instance, who complained about her treatment at the hands of New Jersey’s mandatory quarantine rules, she is being transferred to her home in Maine.

Maine’s policies, however, are not as strict as New Jersey’s, and will allow Kaci Hickox to remain in her home under a voluntary 21-day quarantine — though her lawyer said he expected her to only remain in seclusion for the “next day or so” while he works with Maine health officials.
