Her quarantine is scheduled to end on November 10 despite her refusal to participate.
MAINE – Kaci Hickox, a nurse who was quarantined at a hospital in New Jersey after treating Ebola patients in West Africa, left her home overnight during a mandatory quarantine. Now, the state is monitoring her every move.
ABC’s Tahman Bradley reports Hickox is fed up and ready to fight. She defied her quarantine restrictions to send a message to officials in Maine, her home state: If you don’t lift the 21-day quarantine, she plans to sue the state.
However, with a state police officer outside her home watching everything she does, Maine is determined to keep Hickox confined to her home even though she has tested negative for Ebola.
Many residents in the area are scared. 10 people canceled surgeries at the local hospital worried Hickox would get sick and show up.
