A helicopter carrying airmen with the 129th Rescue Wing flew over the Grand Princess cruise ship off the coast of California on March 5. The unidentified Minnesota patient had been on the Grand Princess for an earlier cruise between California and Mexico, and is recovering at home in isolation.

SAN FRANCISCO - As the U.S. death toll from the new coronavirus reached at least 21, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and the mayor of Oakland sought Sunday to reassure the public that none of the passengers from a ship carrying people with the virus will be released into the public before undergoing a 14-day quarantine.

The Grand Princess carrying more than 3,500 people from 54 countries is expected to dock Monday in Oakland, in the east San Francisco Bay, and was idling off the coast Sunday as officials prepared a port site. Those needing acute medical care will come off first.
