New Jersey releasing quarantined nurse
TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey officials say a nurse who was quarantined after working in West Africa with Ebola patients is being released.
The state Health Department said in a statement Monday that Kaci Hickox had been symptom-free for 24 hours and would be taken on a private carrier to Maine.
Hickox has complained about her treatment in New Jersey and was talking about suing. She was the first person forced into a mandatory quarantine in the state, announced Friday by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for people arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport from three West African countries.
Speaking at a campaign event in Florida on Monday morning, Christie "when she has time to reflect, she'll understand" the quarantine.
