NBC's chief medical correspondent is on the news for all the wrong reasons. Nancy Synderman broke her quarantine treatment order when in Princeton, just a few days after her cameraman was diagnosed with the Ebola virus.  

Nancy Synderman, 62, was the butt of all criticism when she broke her self isolation agreement in Princeton. NBC's Synderman had agreed to isolate herself for 21 days as part of the voluntary arrangement with the Centers for Disease Control and state officials.

According to official police reports, Synderman and three others who were working with camera man Ashoka Mukpo, had agreed to quarantine themselves for 21 days, until it was clear they had not contracted Ebola. However, for Synderman, this was not the case.

Synderman was spotted outside her home buying groceries just days after she had agreed to quarantine herself. She was spotted in a car outside a grocery shop. She had sent a man to go get her groceries before being spotted by a neighbor who immediately tipped the police. The police said they would look into it. Immediately she realized she had been seen, the NBC correspondent hid her face behind huge sunglasses before driving off.

The sighting was first reported by Planet Princeton. New Jersey officials immediately released a mandatory quarantine order for the NBC medical correspondent. Police officers in Princeton are now keeping a keen eye on the neighborhood to ensure Synderman does not disobey her quarantine order.

Dr. Nancy Synderman issued a statement on Monday apologizing for violating the voluntary isolation agreement she had made after being exposed to Ebola.

Brian Williams from NBC nightly news read a statement from Synderman on television on Monday that contained her apology for breaking the voluntary quarantine rule. It read out, "As a health professional I know that we have no symptoms (of Ebola) and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused," she said.
