    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.
    Hickox returned to the United States last month after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone and was quarantined in a tent outside a hospital in New Jersey for four days despite showing no symptoms. :zoned:
