Quarantined ship Presque Isle docks at Port Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Presque Isle, a ship quarantined due to a COVID-19 outbreak, has docked at Port Milwaukee. 

Officials announced last week a number of crew members tested positive for COVID-19. Sick crew members will enter isolation and the ship will be disinfected. 

How long the freighter stays depends on how long it takes to clean it. 

Officials say the ship was making one of its first runs in the Great Lakes shipping season when COVID struck.
