NEW YORK (AP) The governors of New York and New Jersey are at odds with scientists over Ebola as the governors back 21-day quarantines for medical workers returning from West Africa.

The governors are requiring health workers who've worked with Ebola patients in West Africa to stay in their homes during the Ebola incubation period.

Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says the quarantines may discourage health workers from going to West African to help stop the spread of Ebola.
