Quarantined Nurse Kaci Hickox Released from Hospital, Returning to Maine [POLL]
A nurse with ties to Fort Kent was discharged from a New Jersey hospital and is on her way to Maine.
33-year-old Kaci Hickox had been quarantined in isolation since Friday after her return from Sierra Leone because she had been in direct contact with Ebola patients in West Africa.
New Jersey Health Department officials said Monday that Hickox had been symptom-free for 24-hours and would be taken on a private carrier to Maine.
Hickox was automatically quarantined when she arrived at Newark Liberty International Airport. New Jersey is one of four states that have begun quarantining people returning from West Africa who had contact with Ebola patients.
