I think it bothers people to think there are returning workers who have had contact with Ebola victims return to America and doing things like going bowling, riding the subway, etc. Maybe the other workers did such things, maybe they didn't.

Yes, we know all about science and how the disease is transmitted. We also know that medical workers would never slip up, never make any kind of mistake, and that they are infallible in regarding to self-reporting and monitoring. We're all aware that scientists and medical people thoroughly understand this disease and can be absolutely sure there will be no problems. This is such a certainty that returning workers need not be troubled whatsoever with any delays upon their return.

Re bonus question: please stop attributing concern over this to "fear." What you call "fear, " I call common sense. Others might call it "abundance of caution."
