Quotes

"We don't have a total lockdown, it's more restricted access" he said
"Everybody's sweating this," said Dr. Paul Lewis, Multnomah County Health Office. "The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) is walking an uncomfortable highwire. Is sweat contagious? We don't know. Given that it's the largest Ebola outbreak ever, we need to be prepared for a suspected case to show up in Portland. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst."
...says Alan Glass, director of student health at Washington University in St Louis and former president of the American College Health Association. "But they do cause students to miss school, and if it's a critical time in the semester, just a few days can make the difference between an A or a B "

It was the worst-case scenario, not just for guests but also the business, but our main concern is for the wellbeing of our visitors."
