FORT KENT, Maine (AP) — An Ebola nurse who fought quarantines in New Jersey and Maine says she’s going to stay in southern Maine while she decides what to do next with her life.
Monday marked the 21st day since Kaci Hickox’s last exposure to an Ebola patient. On Tuesday, she’ll be freed from daily monitoring.
Hickox says she and her boyfriend are leaving northern Maine because he’s no longer enrolled at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, where they were disappointed with the way he was treated.
She says they intend to spend time in Freeport while sorting out their next move. She says she’s considering returning to college and she’d also return to West Africa “in a heartbeat.”
