Life goes on for nurse in standoff over Ebola
FORT KENT, ME - The nurse who's become the public face of health care volunteers who're being scrutinized upon returning from West Africa is doing cleaning and laundry while she waits to learn whether she'll be quarantined until the 21-day incubation period ends on Nov. 10.
Kaci Hickox, who returned to the U.S. last week, has been under what Maine is calling a voluntary quarantine after returning from treating Ebola patients.
She has rebelled against the restrictions, saying that her rights are being violated and that she is no threat to others because she has no symptoms.
The standoff has become the nation's most closely watched clash between personal freedom and fear of Ebola. State officials have been negotiating with her while threatening to go to court to force her into quarantine.
