A nurse who treated Ebola patients in West Africa and publicly fought quarantine orders in New Jersey and Maine after returning to the United States last month has decided to move away from her home state, a newspaper in Maine reported.
Kaci Hickox and her boyfriend, Ted Wilbur, plan to leave Maine after Nov. 10, or the expiration of the monitoring period for the virus' 21-day incubation, according to the Press Herald newspaper.
Wilbur did not say where the couple planned to move. "We’re going to try to get our lives back on track," he told the newspaper on Friday.
Wilbur and Hickox could not immediately be reached for comment.
Wilbur told the Press Herald he has withdrawn from his nursing program at the University of Maine at Fort Kent because university officials were not doing enough to stop threats against him. Dan Demeritt, spokesman for the University of Maine System, told the Press Herald the school "worked hard to balance the students' needs and the overall concerns of the campus and the community."
Would it have really been that hard to quietly go home and stay there for three weeks, or better yet consider that part of your 'service and sacrifice' would include three weeks in Africa under tight restrictions before you get on a plane?

Good luck to both them in trying to get jobs in nursing anywhere,
