FAIRFIELD (AP) — Two jets carrying about 350 Americans fleeing the virus zone in China landed Wednesday morning at an Air Force base in Northern California. Some will be quarantined at a hotel on the base for 14 days while others will go under quarantine at a Southern California military base, officials said.
Guests and staff at the hotel on Travis Air Force Base near the city of Fairfield, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from San Francisco, were moved out ahead of the planes' arrival, said Technical Sgt. Traci Keller. The Americans were evacuated from the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is at the center of the new virus outbreak.
Other planes carrying Americans home from Wuhan will arrive this week at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and Eppley Airfield in O
