CT Governor Declares State of Emergency Due to Ebola

Earlier this month, Governor Dannel P. Malloy signed an order that gives the Commissioner of the Department of Public Health (DPH) the ability to effectively quarantine an individual or a group of individuals who may have been exposed to or infected with the Ebola virus.
Officials say the order is not being executed because a specific case has been identified, but rather as a precautionary and preparatory measure in the event that the state either has a confirmed infection or has confirmed that someone at risk of developing the infection is residing in the state.
