October 26, 2014 03:58 GMT

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is acknowledging that the 21-day Ebola quarantine he and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced may be difficult to enforce.

The Daily News reports ( that Cuomo said Saturday that officials never considered whether people refusing to go along with the quarantine could face prosecution or arrest.

The newspaper says Cuomo was asked at a campaign event what would happen if someone resisted a quarantine order. He said, "It's nothing that we've discussed, no."

Cuomo and Christie announced Friday that travelers arriving in New York and New Jersey after close contact with Ebola patients in West Africa would be quarantined for 21 days. They described the quarantine as mandatory but did not explain how it would work.

Cuomo is seeking re-election on Nov. 4.
