Ann Yin and her daughter, Emy, 6, FaceTimed with her husband, Yulin, who is under quarantine after being airlifted out of Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus, Sunday, Feb. 9. With them is their dog, Wang Wang.

Yulin Yin is on day six of his 14-day federal quarantine in San Diego, where he and roughly 230 other people are being monitored for novel coronavirus infections, and he's trying to keep boredom at bay.

The Minneapolis IT worker said he is grateful to have gained a seat on one of five flights that airlifted U.S. citizens and their immediate family members out of Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, but now is penned in with strangers who are keeping their distance in case anyone is infected. "We're just supposed to keep a social distance of 6 feet away," he said.
