CDC to quarantine Americans evacuated out of China

Americans who arrived in California after being evacuated from China over the novel coronavirus this week will be quarantined, a rare action taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Americans will be quarantined for a period lasting 14 days from when they left Wuhan, the Chinese city where the virus was first detected.

It's not clear whether any of the 195 individuals have the virus. Tests are ongoing, and Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said a "negative result on a test will not help us confirm that people will be safe from this disease."
