Christie on Mandatory Ebola Quarantine: 'This Is Government's Job'

On “Fox News Sunday,” Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said his action to keep the citizens of New Jersey safe by enacting a 21-day medical quarantine on healthcare workers returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa is what governments are supposed to do.

“This is government’s job, we have taken this action, and I have no second thoughts about it,” Christie said. “I believe that folks who want to take that step and are willing to volunteer also understand that it’s in their interest and the public health interest to have a 21-day period thereafter if they’ve been directed expose to people with the virus”
