"It's just an environment where people can not separate sufficiently from each other to prevent transmission... and with the ongoing outbreak that we're having around the world right now, there's really no way to effectively screen people out of cruise ships", said BC provincial health officer Bonnie Henry, adding that going on a cruise "is really taking a chance on your health at the moment".

The 2,400 passengers, who have been largely confined to their staterooms since Thursday, were to begin disembarking on Monday for transport to quarantine stations or hospitals, depending on whether they are well or need immediate medical attention.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the couple claims the PCL was grossly negligent in allowing them and thousands of other passengers get onboard in late February. when the ship's staff knew damn well at least two other passengers with coronavirus had just disembarked from a previous voyage - and at least one of them died as a result.

Worldwide passengers from Canada and the United Kingdom will be taken directly to the tarmac on the base, where they will then catch chartered flights home.

"It would only stand to reason, that having experienced such a traumatic outbreak on board one of its vessels less than a month prior to the current voyage on board the Grand Princess, that the defendant would have learned to take all necessary precautions to keep its passengers, crew and the general public safe", according to the complaint.

Princess Cruises confirmed with Live Science that so far, 45 people aboard the Grand Princess have been tested for COVID-19.

"We'll refer that question and we will get you an answer from the White House physician very quickly", Pence said.

The Grand Princess pulled into the Port of Oakland with more than 3,500 people - 21 of them infected with the new virus.

Wray McClelland spoke to NEWS 1130 from Oakland where he and his wife were waiting to board a flight to a military base in Trenton, Ontario.

The ship is now scheduled to dock at the Port of Oakland today (March 9), two days after the cruise was supposed to end, and the process is expected to be a multi-day process. "We want some answers; we want this resolved; we want to go home".

The U.S. State Department on Sunday advised that "U.S. citizens, particularly travelers with underlying health conditions, should not travel by cruise ship", noting an "increased risk of infection of COVID-19 in a cruise ship environment".

While only 788 tests have been conducted statewide so far, California now has kits for 8,000 individuals and that a private lab, Quest Diagnostics in San Juan Capistrano, will be able to process 2,000 tests each day beginning Monday, if needed.

"We're leaning towards not going", Romanado conceded.

"Italy's shut down is problematic", she said. Crumley has sent the Outpost a few videos of life aboard on the last day of the ill-starred cruise.

LaGesse said he was angered by the president's comments about potentially keeping passengers on board, and what he felt was a lack of planning and leadership around the crisis.

A spokeswoman for operator Princess Cruises said: "Disembarkation will commence in order of priority, as defined and directed by both state and local authorities".

"As a family member and son of a mom that I really, really love".
