..............Even if they do the clean up, will customers rush back to the ebola bridal shop, E-bowl-a-lanes or ebola cruises etc.? Not sure our biz could survive closing the doors, there would be no assurances we wouldn't lose income/customers. Might be a win for socially starved HCWs but businesses will lose big time.


E-Bowl-A Lanes. What a snappy name for a business!




Being a Brit, i might start making a nice little earner flogging a line of E-bowler hats.

OK, i'll get my coat.

I don't think we've seen the last of HCW's who will flaunt the regulations. We've had three....so far. There will most likely be more.

Imo if a HCW is not prepared to do a three week quarantine - MINIMUM - after going to West Africa - that person shouldn't go at all. And imo, the quarantine should last at least six weeks as some have suggested, just to be on the safe side.

I'd be interested in knowing if any of the workers passed the disease on to other people in West Africa.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Narcissism disguised as altruism.

Hmmm ...

Narcissism - extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.

Alturism - the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others. Behavior of an animal that benefits another at its own expense.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.



She doesn't have ebola.
She's schizophrenic.
That's not contagious.
No quarantine!
Commendations for everyone.
Now, let's all stop this bickering and go bowling.

E-bowler hats LOL. If you could incorporate a face shield/decontamination shower in the brim you'd make a million.

If this wasn't such a GD disgusting cluster #$%& it'd be hilarious.

I wonder how many hcw's passed this disease on to other hcw's? I suppose that is possible too, given how things are progressing.

The next couple of weeks should bring even more cases, esp. in NYC.

I know i shouldn't joke about it, you're right...but differences of opinion of our membership aside, i thought a little light injection (ahem) of humour would be a relief.

No worries I get it. Lol-ing kinda takes the edge off all the disgust/anger and expense. It'd be nice if a few entrepreneurs could make lemonade out of this rotten mess and come out ahead.

ETA: Maybe the restaurant Nancy Snyderman visited can add E-bowl-a-soup to the menu. As biz owners/taxpayers the hubby/I know we'll be the ones picking up the tab. A handful of butt hurt HCWs are crying over being inconvenienced and the only fix is to inconvenience the masses. Makes perfect sense.

Sounds to me like they're being monitored at home. Whether it's a family or five individuals I don't know.

It seems to me they came back from that area....maybe hcw's? Don't know. That report doesn't hand out much information, inc. the county/counties in which these people reside:


State health officials are not releasing the names of the counties where travelers are being monitored to protect their heath information privacy in accordance with the Infectious Disease Reporting Rule.

Well...considering how returning health care workers, and those working with ebola patients here are taking self monitoring with a grain of salt. It makes me wonder if monitoring means the person sends a selfie of themselves twice a day from where ever they are roaming about.

Another post on the lighter side, my mother back home, bless her heart.

Everytime she watches the news she calls me. (completely ignoring the time difference) and asks me if I heard the latest "E-boler" news.

And then I calm her down and she always says "If you get the ebolers you ain't commin' home for at least a month."

"Ok mom, love you, mom. Bye mom."

She's doing this because, as a health professional who worked with Ebola patients, she knows the warning signs, knows she doesn't have any, and will surely report them if they appear (like the doctor in New York has done). The people who worked with Ebola are not among those who panic that the virus is sitting on a cupcake in the local bakery, they know exactly what to look for and when a person is contagious - the contagious stage comes long into the illness. She's standing up for her rights, and doing so on a national stage.


By the time she spots any warning signs...it's too late. By that time, if not quarantined...she would have come in contact with numerous people. The quarantine is not for her safety...but for other's.

Agreed. This is another reason I wish that Dr. Spencer hadn't lied to the police and stuck by his quarantine. Who knows how many people he infected. Let's hope not many (if any).
