State Implements Tighter Ebola Quarantine Standards

October 27, 2014

(Springfield, IL)  --  State officials are implementing a mandatory quarantine for anyone who comes into Illinois after having contact with an Ebola patient.  Officials say they'll keep watch on the person for 21-days.  The new requirement comes days after a doctor in New York City fell ill with the disease.  He'd just returned to the U.S. after treating Ebola patients in West Africa.  The doctor rode the subway, took a cab, and went bowling before he got sick.  No Ebola cases have been reported in Illinois.
