NEW YORK (AP) - The fiancee of a doctor who is being treated for Ebola has left Bellevue Hospital Center.

Morgan Dixon, the fiancee of Dr. Craig Spencer, left the hospital Saturday evening but will remain in quarantine in her upper Manhattan apartment.

Spencer was admitted to Bellevue on Thursday and tested positive for Ebola. His is the first case of the deadly virus in the city.

Dixon and two friends of the couple are in quarantine as a precaution.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said the quarantine for all three would be lifted on Nov. 14.

De Blasio spoke after eating lunch at a Greenwich Village restaurant where Spencer ate earlier this week.

Spencer arrived in New York on Oct. 17 after treating Ebola patients in Guinea.
