U.S. Soldiers From Ebola Areas Quarantined Upon Return

NBC News reports that “soldiers coming back from serving in Ebola-hit Liberia will be kept in quarantine for 21 days, the U.S. Army said Monday — even though they were kept apart from any Ebola patients.”  

“A dozen soldiers, including Major General Darryl Williams, their commander, will be confined to a housing complex with barracks, a dining hall and a gym but no outside access at their home base in Vicenza, Italy, the Defense Department said. They will not be able to return to their homes or interact with other personnel at the base, except those working in the quarantine area.”  

“Williams turned over command of troops in Liberia to Army Major General Gary Volesky and his 101st Airborne Division on Saturday.”
