Experts have criticized Govs. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Chris Christie of New Jersey for announcing quarantines for health workers returning from West Africa, where the Ebola virus is raging. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced less restrictive guidelines with different recommendations aimed at different groups. Meanwhile, the Pentagon announced plans to go further than the CDC guidelines and put troops returning from Ebola response missions in West Africa in quarantine for 21 days — the incubation period for Ebola.The Associated PressaGeneral newsHealthDisease outbreaksDiseases and conditionsGovernment and politicsInfectious diseasesPublic healthOutdoor recreationRecreation and leisureLifestyleAfricaWest AfricaLiberiaSierra LeoneGuineaNorth KoreaUnited StatesEast AsiaMaineLouisianaAsiaNorth Americahttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/b980c3e17b9e4545ac28fecdd1ae69a3Thu, 30 Oct 2014 18:04:15 GMTNot so sweet: Chocolate prices are set to risehttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/b0a683c34ac14208af3cbb1aa4010a07NEW YORK (AP) — That bowl of chocolates for ninjas and ghosts won't cost you more this Halloween.
