MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Twenty-nine Wisconsin residents who were quarantined on a cruise ship in California because of the new coronavirus have returned to Wisconsin.

Gov. Tony Evers says they were escorted by members of the Wisconsin National Guard to their homes where they are expected to self-quarantine for 14 days.

The Grand Princess cruise ship carrying thousands of passengers docked at the port of Oakland on March 9. Evers says none of the passengers from Wisconsin have tested positive for the virus.

The governor's office says the 30 members of the National Guard who transported the people home will self-monitor for 14 days.
