HARTFORD, Conn. —Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed an order that gives the state’s public health commissioner the ability to quarantine anyone she believes may have been exposed to the Ebola virus.

Malloy says Tuesday’s order is precautionary and designed to ensure that the state is prepared to deal with any suspected Ebola cases.

He says it also will allow for a more coordinated response to any potential case of Ebola.

The order declares a public health emergency, giving Commissioner Jewel Mullen the authority to issue quarantine orders. That authority usually rests with local public health directors.

Mullen says there is no reason to believe anyone in the state is infected or at risk of infection.
