    The boyfriend would seem to fall into the "some risk" category, not "high risk." That just calls for direct active monitoring with additional precautions as determined by public health authorities. And neither he nor she would, as per the CDC, be subject to quarantine unless/until they became symptomatic.

    Thanks for outing yourself and putting the lie to your displayed lean. But this thread isn't about you. I posted the real deal, the CDC's protocols for ebola, all you had to do was read it. You apparently are comfortable choosing another path. That choice is on you.

    I think you're still confusing quarantine with isolation. And protocol is, when two people are living together, the more restrictive protocol is in place. Surely you can see how this is a wise move.

    How dare the CDC implement a protocol that could restrict the movement of a person that "knows better". LOL

    That's not what the CDC guidelines say.

    In fact I got it wrong. Some risk is defined as follows:


    Some risk includes any of the following:

    In countries with widespread Ebola virus transmission: direct contact while using appropriate PPE with a person with Ebola while the person was symptomatic
    Close contact in households, healthcare facilities, or community settings with a person with Ebola while the person was symptomatic
    Close contact is defined as being for a prolonged period of time while not wearing appropriate PPE within approximately 3 feet (1 meter) of a person with Ebola while the person was symptomatic



    So he doesn't even qualify as that. Nor does he qualify as low risk as for that you still need to be in contact with someone who is symptomatic.

    None, let them all in and hold their hands. Allow them to travel freely through the US. Hopefully spreading the disease to the point of pandemic.
    Just as long as their rights and freedoms area not affected one way or the other.

    That isn't an answer, guess you don't have an answer when someone challenges your statements...

    Answered the hell out of it. She had no idea if she was viral. She just wanted her "rights" protected. Awesome caring nurse she must be.
