New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he stands behind the state’s decision to issue a mandatory quarantine for medical workers returning to the U.S. from Ebola-stricken countries.
In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Christie said the 21-day quarantine for those considered “high risk,” who are returning home through airports in New York and New Jersey, is likely just the start of a larger requirement nationwide.
“I think this is a policy that will become a national policy sooner or later,” Christie said, according to the Washington Post.
He added that it is the government’s duty to step in and take precautionary measures to help stop the spread of Ebola.
