The quarantine is over for 90 coronavirus evacuees at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. The Centers for Disease Control said today the evacuees are showing no signs of the virus after being in isolation for 14 days. The CDC also noted the people do not present a danger to the public. The CDC said, "It is important to know that these people being released from quarantine pose no health risk to the surrounding community, or to the communities they will be returning to. CDC extends its thanks to these individuals for their cooperation and patience during their quarantine and wish them well as they return to home, work, and school. CDC also thanks the men and women at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland and their families for their graciousness while hosting these guests."

One person who did test positive for the coronavirus is still being treated in San Antonio. In addition to the 90 Americans who were evacuated from China, there are 144 Americans who were brought to Lackland from a cruise ship in Japan that are still quarantined.
