Cruise ship passengers will be quarantined at Asilomar Conference Grounds. Nothing to help a speedy recovery more than being stuck there.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that Monterey County would house some of the evacuated passengers from the Grand Princess cruise ship that tested positive for coronavirus.
According to Monterey County District Supervisor Chris Lopez, the handful of passengers coming to the county would be quarantined at Asilomar Hotel & Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove.
Monterey County District Supervisor Mary Adams who represents that part of the county, said four to eight people are expected to be housed at the hotel. The hotel was selected because it meets all of CDC’s guidelines for quarantine.
