    Yes, it was done right, she was placed under quarantine after having daily direct contact with the infected. She however is a selfish bitch that cares not at all for anyone but herself. Not to mention her chosen profession. There's nothing political about this. Disease doesn't care what your political bent is. She could have been infected. Had that been the case she wouldn't have known if she were contagious until she was obviously symptomatic.

    This is all really basic medical procedure when dealing with infectious disease. You seem to want to ignore that because your political side chose to downplay infection control standards.

    I agree with the first sentence, and that calls for quarantine of those with direct contact. The rest is just plain wrong, medically and scientifically.

    Can you support that claim? As far as I know the CDC disagrees as did the judge who reviewed the evidence both sides put before him.

    Call for quarantines all you like, just follow the law when you do. Other than that, you can believe anything "medically and scientifically" you wish.

    How do you know that?

    How do I know you weren't hanging around Sierra Leone?

    Are you telling me the only thing I have to be afraid of is now only ISIS!?!?
    Its not the known cases you need to be concerned over so much as the unknown ones.

    Really? You have to call her a bitch?

    Anger issues, deal with them...

    Yes, by studying the infectious control protocols developed by the CDC itself. I don't know why the CDC makes such protocols if they're going to abandon them in the face of politics but they have become a political org over the years I've subscribed to JAMA. Don't know why we would trust a trial judge to judge medical necessity in the first place. In this case the state medical board should have made the determination. Which btw they did when they quarantined her.

    Such ignorance on full display, medical quarantine trumps.
