A police car outside of the home of Kaci Hickox on October 31, 2014 in Fort Kent, MaineA US judge ruled Friday that a nurse quarantined by her home state after treating Ebola patients could leave home and frequent public places, saying she was not infectious. The decision from a district judge in the northeastern state of Maine is the latest twist in a bitter row over enforced quarantine of American medics returning from relief work in West Africa. It reversed a temporary order that prevented her from visiting cinemas and shopping centers, and demanded she keep three feet away from others while Judge Charles LaVadiere examined the case. Kaci Hickox insists that she is perfectly healthy and has fought efforts of US authorities to keep her in quarantine for 21 days, the incubation period for the virus, since returning home.
