New Jersey Department of Health Statement on NBC News Crew

Before returning to the United States, the NBC crew made an agreement with the New Jersey Department of Health and local health officials to voluntarily self-confine themselves for the remainder of the 21 days following their low risk of exposure on October 1 to an individual who is being treated for Ebola. Unfortunately, the NBC crew violated this agreement and so the Department of Health Friday evening issued a mandatory quarantine order to ensure that the crew will remain confined until Oct. 22. The NBC crew remains symptom-free, so there is no reason for concern of exposure to the community.
