NBC News medical correspondent Nancy Snyderman has admitted that some members of her crew violated a voluntary quarantine to protect against Ebola, a misstep that caused New Jersey health officials to make that quarantine mandatory.

NBC said Tuesday that Snyderman and her crew are taking their temperatures regularly and remain healthy. The team was reporting in Liberia alongside cameraman Ashoka Mukpo (ah-SHOH'-kuh MUK'-poh), who tested positive for the deadly disease and is now being treated in Nebraska.

Snyderman confirmed the violation, but neither she nor NBC representatives would give details.

The local news website Planet Princeton reported that Snyderman and others drove for takeout food last week.
