Travelers from China non-viral, says Ulster County

The 14-day voluntary self-isolation is according to state and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and represent, the release stated, “and out of an abundance of caution to protect the public health and safety of all Ulster County and New York State residents.”

    This is ridiculous…”self isolate”?! Voluntary?!It should be mandatory, if they don’t like it they shouldn’t have taken a trip to China for God sakes. This puts Ulster County residents in danger and it’s complete BS!
