Kaci Hickox, a nurse who refused to be quarantined, was asked by a Maine judge to limit her movements and keep her distance from members of the public until the court issues additional guidance. This temporary order states that Hickox stay at least three feet away from people while walking, riding her bike and jogging. The order also ruled that she stay away from public places. Hickox, who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in West Africa, wanted to fight any court order that would violate her civil rights. She has no symptoms of the virus.
