UPDATE: False Alarm.
A health care worker arriving from Africa who was placed in mandatory quarantine as part of a new policy by the governors of New York and New Jersey has developed a fever.
The state health department said the woman had no symptoms upon arrival at Newark Liberty Airport, but on Friday night she developed the fever and is now in isolation and being evaluated at University Hospital in Newark.
University Hospital released a statement saying, "The healthcare worker Governor Chris Christie indicated earlier today would be -quarantined because of a recent history of treating Ebola patients in West Africa had no symptoms upon arrival at Newark Liberty International Airport earlier today. This evening, the health care worker developed a fever and is now in isolation and being evaluated at University Hospital in Newark."

As we wait for the blood test results on this one, how many more Ebola cases before HopeyDopey finally declares an absolute travel quarantine from West Africa, or gets dragged out of the White House and carried off in a tumbrel cart to the guillotine?
Place your bets, the wheel is spinning...
