(CNN) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital after being treated for a possible infection in her latest health scare.

"Justice Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital," a Supreme Court spokeswoman said in a statement Wednesday.

"She is home and doing well.".

Ginsburg had been taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore early on Tuesday "after experiencing fever and chills," spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said.

"She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August," Arberg said on Tuesday, announcing Ginsburg's hospitalization.

"The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.".

Ginsburg's quick discharge is the latest apparent dodge of a health scare for the 87-year-old justice, who has proven adept at continuing her job without interruption despite her health issues. »

Both company and city policies were likely important factors in preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 during these interactions between clients and stylists.

Consistent and correct use of face coverings, when appropriate, is an important tool for minimizing spread of SARS-CoV-2 from presymptomatic, asymptomatic, and symptomatic persons. »

A 5pm curfew – far stricter than the measures imposed by the government – is also forcing street vendors inside.

In two provinces, Cauca and Guaviare, armed groups have torched the motorcycles of those of those who ignored their restrictions. »
