Amber Vinson’s mother spoke about her daughter’s conditions in an interview that aired Tuesday, Oct. 21 on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Debra Berry, Vinson’s mother, said she is “very confident” Amber is receiving good care at Emory University Hospital near Atlanta. 

Berry remains in self-quarantine as directed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

“Because she wasn’t sick, and knowing that she would never expose me or anyone else to something that would be harmful, I’m just being told what I’m suppose to do,” Berry said.

The CDC placed new guidelines Monday, Oct. 20 for any caregivers who interact with Ebola patients to help prevent further infection.
