ATLANTA, GA - An Emory University Hospital spokeswoman says a Dallas nurse who was being treated for Ebola will be released Tuesday.

Emory spokeswoman Holly Korschun told The Associated Press that Vinson will be leaving the hospital Tuesday after a 1 p.m. news conference to make a statement after tests showed she's virus-free.

Vinson worked as a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died of Ebola at the hospital.

Vinson's family announced Oct. 22 that doctors could no longer detect the virus in Vinson's body.

Vinson was one of two nurses who became infected while caring for Duncan. The other nurse, Nina Pham, was released Oct. 24 from a hospital attached to the National Institutes of Health.
