The nurse who clashed with Maine authorities over an Ebola quarantine said she plans to leave the town where she lives soon after the virus’ 21-day incubation period ends on Monday.
“We are going to southern Maine and will decide what’s next from there,” Kaci Hickox told CNN on Sunday.
Hickox tested negative for Ebola after traveling to West Africa to treat those battling the deadly virus, but officials in both Maine and New Jersey responding to public fear of the virus still wanted to place in quarantine. Hickcox eventually won a legal fight against Maine over the quarantine.
“We’re going to try to get our lives back on track,” her boyfriend Ted Wilbur told the Portland Press Herald.
