After visiting Liberia, CBS reporter Lara Logan under Ebola quarantine

Lara Logan of CBS News is under voluntary quarantine in South America, after she visited a Liberia hospital caring for Ebola patients for a "60 Minutes" story that ran Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

CBS said Monday that Logan's 21-day self-quarantine at a hotel will end Friday. Neither Logan, nor four other CBS employees in the same situation, have shown any signs of having the virus.

Logan said in a "60 Minutes Overtime" web interview she was having some cabin fever while waiting out the quarantine.

Then again, three weeks of room service on CBS' dime can't be the worst thing in the world.

The "60 Minutes" story showed her precautions at the U.S.-run hospital in Liberia, which included avoiding touching people and being hosed down with a chlorine solution.

Logan generated headlines and controversy last year when her report about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, was widely discredited. She took a leave of absence from CBS News in the wake of the report. She began working on CBS News programs over the summer, and returned to "60 Minutes" this fall.
