Kaci Hickox Boyfriend: “We Want Everyone to Feel Comfortable” (Video)

The boyfriend of Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox told reporters, “We want to make everyone feel comfortable,” after the two took a bike ride together yesterday morning in Maine.

CNN reported:

The boyfriend of a Maine nurse who defied an Ebola quarantine is speaking out, saying isolating returnees from West Africa will affect their partners as well.

Nurse Kaci Hickox recently returned to the United States after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone. She’s been in a tense standoff with state authorities, who want her to stay home for 21 days — the incubation period for the deadly virus.

…”If anyone in the community might have noticed, we went bicycling that way. We did not go into town,” he told the affiliate.

Wilbur said they are not trying to cause trouble and want the community to feel at ease.

“We did not go into the grocery store. We are not trying to get anyone sick,” he said. “We don’t believe that we can get anyone sick. We’re not trying to push any limits here. We’re members of this community too, and we want to make everyone feel comfortable.”
