The Department of Defense is working with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to support passengers returning to the United States on the Grand Princess cruise ship.


Upon docking, passengers will be medically screened by HHS/CDC at the port and then asymptomatic passengers only will be transferred to federal military installations for COVID-19 testing, and a 14-day quarantine.


HHS informs us that nearly 1,000 passengers who are California residents will likely complete the mandatory quarantine at Travis Air Force Base and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and residents of other states will likely complete their mandatory quarantine at Joint Base San Antonio Lackland in Texas or Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia.


The final list of DoD locations and the numbers of passengers at each base are still being worked, and we will update this information as soon as the details are finalized. 


For additional information on quarantine operations, please contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
