An estimated 350 Americans have been fleeing from the virus zone in China are being screened on Wednesday at two California Bases where they will be quarantined for fourteen days. 

Two jets came in before dawn at Travis Air Force Base northeast of San Francisco. Officials have made it known that one hundred seventy-eight of the passengers will spread the next fourteen days at a hotel on the grounds, while the others were transported hours later to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar near San Diego.

The guests and staff lodged at the hotel were moved out before the plane landed. The Americans evacuated out of the Chinese city of Wuhan range from the ages of two to over sixty-five. They will receive health evaluations to check for symptoms of the virus and have their temperatures taken twice a day.

Other planes bringing in other families from Wuhan will arrive on Thursday the 6th at an Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas where they’ll be quarantined.
