POLL: Who should pay for quarantines in NJ?
Do you know how much it costs to quarantine someone in New Jersey?
In West Haven Connecticut, a family of 6 is serving a mandatory quarantine. When you take the costs of the unmarked police car, health care worker to check on them, food and supplies, the costs total about $1000 per day or more.
While the costs for quarantining someone in New Jersey haven't been calculated yet, Connecticut's total could serve as a good comparison.
Should New Jersey be paying for the quarantine, or should the cost fall on the Federal Government? Who should pay companies that supply workers to treat patients?
You can get an idea of how much it would cost to employ these workers on the Doctors Without Borders website.
