TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
Chartered buses carrying the first round of passengers from the Grand Princess cruise ship arrived at Travis AFB on Monday, Mar. 9 at approximately 8:15 p.m. PST. to start their 14 day quarantine. A second round of passengers are arriving today to begin their 14 day quarantine.
As HHS reported, anyone who has tested positive for the virus will not be brought to the base, and those who display or develop symptoms after arrival will be transferred to an off base medical facility. They will not remain on Travis AFB.
CDC is fully responsible for all aspects of the quarantine operation and Team Travis personnel will have no contact with these passengers.
Every precaution to ensure proper isolation and community protection measures are being taken. The safety and security of our Team Travis members and their families remain our highest priority.
Any questions outside the scope of this statement will be deferred to CDC and HHS as the lead agency on the evacuation mission.
