Ebola Isolation at Va. Base "Pretty Much Vacation"

Posted:
HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Life in isolation at a Virginia Air Force base for military members who have returned from Africa after serving in the Ebola response mission involves plenty of games, exercise and relaxation.

Langley Air Force Base is one of five U.S. bases designated to house, isolate and monitor American troops for the Ebola virus for 21 days.

The Air Force says 90 military members who were in Liberia are being housed in a small encampment near Langley's runway. Two of those in isolation spoke with reporters on Tuesday, including a Navy Seabee who says life at the facility is like being on vacation.

There are plenty of creature comforts, including flat screen televisions, a gym and wireless Internet. A football game for those in isolation is planned for Thanksgiving.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
