Does this house look like anyone lives there? There's waist high weeds growing in the front yard, an extension ladder laying on the ground in front of the house, no cars, and a set of sliding double doors leaning against the house. This photo was taken in August of 2014, approximately 2 months ago. I guess Agent Hickox and her mysterious boyfriend Theodore Wilbur moved in quite recently? She has tons of cash, why would she buy a dump like this. Look at the roof! Also notice the handicap ramps in front and the side of the house. I think this was an empty house just before Agent Hickox went "home".

Did we already post this?
She has a degree in Tropical Nursing. And coincidentally...Been to an Ebola-affected country? Stay away from tropical medicine meeting, Louisiana says
So was she upset because she was planning to go to this meeting and couldn't? Or is she now (that she is freeeeeeeee) going to go fight the governor there?
Hickox says. “My training in the EIS with the CDC will allow me to learn the gold standard of this kind of work.”
Friday’s temporary order was the second issued by the court. The first, which enforced the stricter limits sought by the state, was issued Thursday and expired at 9 a.m. Friday. That came within hours of her defying Maine officials, leaving her home and going for a bike ride with her boyfriend.
The second temporary order will remain in effect until a hearing is convened to determine whether a permanent court order should be issued.
The hearing has been scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4 and Wednesday Nov. 5, in Bangor, according to court documents.
The first, and now expired, court order granted the state’s desired restrictions, which temporarily banned Hickox from public transportation and public places, such as shopping malls and movie theaters, and stipulated she remain at least 3 feet away from other people when outside her home.
“The three points [the judge] still recommends I abide by are the three points I believe are part of this compromise we could make,” Hickox said. “I have been compliant with the direct monitoring the CDC recommends and will continue to be compliant.”
Not long after the press conference, a CDC worker arrived at Hickox’s house escorted by an officer from the Fort Kent Police Department.

If someone has not been exposed to Ebola and shows no symptoms of infection the quarantine is pointless. Ebola can't be spread without showing symptoms and a disease outbreak needs to be dealt with by the scientific facts not irrational fears.
Just because a lot of horribly uninformed / misinformed people are scared by the constant scaremongering in the media about a disease that kills far less than other common illnesses doesn't mean we should start recklessly quarantining people.
People seem so quick to throw other people's civil liberties under the bus based on fear without taking any thought about what happens to the person who was quarantined for no reason. Their entire life has basically stopped for a month when the science says they are of very low risk of having contracted the illness.

No I'm saying the whole thing is a sham.
You don't get trained by the CDC & then scream & yell about quarantines, you just don't do it.
It's like being on Kitchen Nightmares & cooking Chef Ramsey frozen or microwaved food.
Sorry, but that's insanity. The CDC, AND ALL OF SCIENCE has been saying for years that someone who contracted ebola is not at risk of transfer until significant symptoms show up -- to the point of needing assistance for mobility.
People are losing their minds. It's sad to watch.
