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 conditionsInfectious diseasesPublic healthOutdoor recreationRecreation and leisureLifestyleAfricaWest AfricaNorth KoreaLiberiaSierra LeoneEast AsiaLouisianaAsiaUnited StatesNorth Americahttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/9316b716567c4822a9bcd3db59550378Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:12:32 GMTIsrael to reopen Jerusalem holy sitehttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/dbdf9fcffbe64b4eaf3d6adefdb53820JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli authorities say they have decided to reopen a key Jerusalem holy site for Muslim worshippers on Friday.iGeneral newsIslamReligionSocial affairsWar and unrestAssassinationsGovernment and politicsReligious issuesSocial issuesIsraelPalestinian territoriesJerusalemMiddle Easthttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/dbdf9fcffbe64b4eaf3d6adefdb53820Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:14:28 GMTNot so sweet: Chocolate prices are set to risehttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/20f2a90567634bacb51a875d39898acfNEW YORK (AP) — That bowl of chocolates for ninjas and ghosts won't cost you more this Halloween.
