Dallas nurse Nina Pham is free of Ebola. So is her dog Bentley. And today, the two happily reunited for the first time since Oct. 12, when Pham had to be hospitalized, reports USA Today.

In Maine, meanwhile, nurse Kaci Hickox is sticking close to home a day after winning the right to go out in public unrestricted if she wishes, reports the Bangor Daily News.

“They understand the sentiment in the community, and they do not want to be disruptive," says the local police chief of Hickox and her boyfriend. (More uplifting news stories.)
