Nurse Will Bust Out of Quarantine

Nurse Kaci Hickox announced on NBC’s Today show Wednesday that she will leave home tomorrow in Maine, despite a 21-day quarantine. “I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines. I remain appalled by these home-quarantine policies that have been forced upon me, even though I am in perfectly good health and feeling strong and have been this entire time completely symptom-free,” she said. Hickox already spent three days in a New Jersey isolation tent under Gov. Chris Christie’s orders after flying home from West Africa. “I truly believe this policy is not scientifically nor constitutionally just, and so I’m not going to sit around and be bullied around by politicians,” she declared. If she followed the voluntary quarantine, she wouldn’t leave her house until Nov. 10. Maine’s governor said he’ll take her to court to keep her at home.
