Maine’s pointless ‘self-quarantine’ to allow Ebola carriers in public if they say just 3 feet away from other people

The governor of Maine has vowed to use whatever authority he could muster to keep a nurse who has just returned from treating Ebola patients in West Africa in quarantine, after she defied a quarantine order by the state in order to take a bike ride with her boyfriend.

The nurse, Kaci Hickox, has been defiant since returning to the United States, first complaining about her alleged bad treatment at the hands of New Jersey authorities and threatening to sue over that state’s quarantine order for returning Ebola patients. Scores of Americans responding online to stories about her antics have taken the attitude that she is in the wrong — and being extremely selfish for a healthcare worker — for not complying with quarantine orders after being around patients with the deadly virus.

Gov. Paul LePage said this week that his office has been in talks to work out a deal with Hickox, who so far has tested negative for Ebola, for how she’ll spend her time on the remaining 21-day window recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to clear someone of the disease. LePage’s office indicated that the governor was not happy about her bike ride. The incubation period ends Nov. 10, reports said.
