UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.S. ambassador, who has just returned from a visit to the countries worst-affected by Ebola, says she is self-monitoring for the virus and that federal guidelines are sufficient.

Samantha Power on Friday praised the United States response to the outbreak in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea and called on other countries to do more.

Power, who arrived late Thursday at a New York City airport, has been openly critical of the quarantine restrictions some U.S. states have struggled to put in place as fear spreads over the worst outbreak of the disease in history.

She tweeted a photo of herself having her temperature taken at the airport on arrival.
