Quantum nonlocality may be an artifact of the assumption that observers obey the laws of classical mechanics, while observed systems obey quantum mechanics. I show that, at least in the case of Bell’s Theorem, locality is restored if observed and observer are both assumed to obey quantum mechanics, as in the Many-Worlds Interpretation. Using the MWI, I shall show that the apparently \non-local" expectation value for the product of the spins of two widely separated particles | the \quantum" part… 
Locality in the Everett Interpretation of Heisenberg-Picture Quantum Mechanics
Bell's theorem depends crucially on counterfactual reasoning, and is mistakenly interpreted as ruling out a local explanation for the correlations which can be observed between the results of
Locality in the Everett Interpretation of Quantum Field Theory
Recently it has been shown that transformations of Heisenberg-picture operators are the causal mechanism which allows Bell-theorem-violating correlations at a distance to coexist with locality in the

Locality and Counterfactual Reasoning in the Everett Interpretation of Heisenberg-Picture Quantum Mechanics
TLDR
The conceptual problem of nonlocality is replaced with a conceptual problems of proliferating labels, as correlated systems and observers undergo measurement-type interactions with newly-encountered objects and instruments; it is suggested that this problem may be resolved by considering quantum field theory rather than the quantum mechanics of particles.
Bell on Bell's theorem: The changing face of nonlocality
Between 1964 and 1990, the notion of nonlocality in Bell's papers underwent a profound change as his nonlocality theorem gradually became detached from quantum mechanics, and referred to wider
