AND... "New Day" senior producer John Griffin has twins!

Jack and Bobby, named after their grandfathers, couldn’t be stopped.

Jack was 6lbs, 12oz and born at 8:48am; Bobby was born at 8:49am, and was 6lbs, 5oz.  They’re early, so they’ll be in the NICU for a couple of days, but they’re both very strong and breathing on their own.  And mom is doing just fine.

Health care workers will also be drilled on how to put on and take off the gear. The CDC has been under fire since two Dallas nurses contracted the virus and dozens of other health care workers were put under a 21-day monitoring period for possible exposure to Ebola.
