The Nebraska Medicine-Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha said in a news release that the patient left the hospital Saturday morning after completing a required 21-day monitoring period.
The facility announced late last month that it was housing the person in a secure area not accessible to other patients or the public. The person has not been named after requesting privacy.
