New Jersey officials say a nurse who was quarantined after working in West Africa with Ebola patients is being released.

The state Health Department said in a statement Monday that Kaci Hickox had been symptom-free for 24 hours and would be taken on a private carrier to Maine.

Hickox has complained about her treatment in New Jersey and was talking about suing. 

She was the first person forced into a mandatory quarantine in the state, announced Friday by. Gov. Chris Christie for people arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport from three West African countries.
