Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC's chief medical editor who worked on the same crew as a freelance cameraman infected with Ebola, reportedly broke a voluntary quarantine last week and has now been ordered into mandatory confinement.

Snyderman initially agreed to the 21-day quarantine with the rest of her NBC crew after Ashoka Mukpo, an American freelance cameraman, was diagnosed while working in Liberia. He has since been transported to a Nebraska hospital for treatment.

But, according to PlanetPrinceton.com, Snyderman was spotted sitting in her car outside a restaurant in Hopewell, New Jersey, on Thursday.

Readers told the hyperlocal news site that the 62-year-old doctor sat in the parking lot outside The Peasant Grille while a man picked up a take-out order. There was reportedly one other passenger in the vehicle.

The New Jersey Health Department then ordered a mandatory quarantine for the NBC crew Friday, officials told The Associated Press, but wouldn’t specify who broke the original 21-day agreement.

Health department officials said the crew is being monitored for Ebola out of an abundance of caution, but all members are symptom-free.

"We fully support those guidelines and continue to expect that they be followed," an NBC official told the AP. "Our team are all well with normal temperatures, which they check multiple times a day, and they are also in daily contact with local health officials."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Ebola can only be spread to others after symptoms have begun.
