Gov. Rick Scott Orders 21-day Monitoring for Ebola

Sunday, 26 October 2014 10:28 AM

Gov. Rick Scott is ordering twice daily monitoring for anyone returning from places the Center for Disease Control designates as affected by Ebola.

Scott signed the order Saturday, giving the Florida Department of Health authority to monitor individuals for 21 days. Scott said his administration asked the CDC to identify risk levels of all returning individuals from specific parts of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone but has not received information.

The governor said in a statement that the health department has already used a CDC web program to identify four individuals who returned to Florida after traveling to areas with Ebola. Scott said he was taking action out of an abundance of caution following news that a New York doctor tested positive for Ebola after caring for patients in Africa.
