Kaci Hickox's Boyfriend Still Barred From Campus

FORT KENT, Maine - Maine nurse Kaci Hickox is free to go wherever she pleases, but her boyfriend is still staying away from the campus where he's a nursing student amid Ebola fears.

Ted Wilbur says the University of Maine at Fort Kent asked him to stay away because his girlfriend had treated Ebola patients in West Africa. The university contends he voluntarily agreed to stay away, and the voluntary agreement remains in effect Monday.

Hickox, who contends she poses no danger because she's not showing symptoms, fought attempts to quarantine her after returning from Sierra Leone.

A Maine judge sided with her Friday and entered a final order Monday.

She and Wilbur live together in Fort Kent in an off-campus home. The 21-day incubation period for Ebola for her ends on Nov. 10.
