Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser issued a quarantine order yesterday for one of the passengers from the Wuhan, China, flight who attempted to leave March Air Reserve Base (MARB).
Kaiser issued the order requiring the person to stay for the entire incubation period or until otherwise cleared.
Officials said this action was taken as a result of the unknown risk to the public should someone leave MARB early without undergoing a full health evaluation.
The individual will remain at MARB until their health status is confirmed. All other passengers from the flight also remain at MARB and continue to be evaluated, officials said.
