Update on the Grand Princess from HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response and the California Office of Emergency Services

The State of California continues to work in partnership with the federal government to aid in the safe return of passengers from the Grand Princess cruise ship. The entire mission is centered around protecting the health of the passengers, and ensuring that when the passengers disembark, the public health of the United States, the State of California, and partner communities is protected.
 
As a reminder none of the passengers who disembark will be released into the general public.
 
Today, it is expected that the Grand Princess cruise ship will dock in the Port of Oakland to begin the disembarking process at approximately noon. Federal support teams from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have setup disembarking screening protocols to focus first on helping those individuals who require immediate emergency medical care, not necessarily related to COVID-19 exposure.
 
Once this first cohort of individuals has disembarked, the federal staff will begin disembarking the 962 California residents aboard. It is expected that these actions will take the greater part of the day on March 9th. California residents who disembark will be transferred to Travis Air Force Base or Marine Corps Air Station Miramar for testing and quarantine. 
 
After California residents are disembarked non-Californians will be transported by the federal government to facilities in other states. The crew will be quarantined aboard the ship. If a crew member is in need of more acute medical care, they will be transferred to an appropriate medical facility in California. 
 
The Grand Princess will only stay in Port of Oakland for the duration of disembarkment. This ship will depart Oakland as soon as possible and will remain elsewhere for the duration of the crew’s quarantine.
