RIVERSIDE (CNS) - With high-fives, hugs and a celebratory tossing of protective face masks into the air, a quarantine of nearly 200 people who were evacuated from the Chinese epicenter of the deadly coronavirus and housed for two weeks at March Air Reserve Base came to an end Tuesday. Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County's public health officer, shared a photo online of some of the quarantined group tossing their surgical masks into the air, in a scene reminiscent of a high school graduation ceremony.

"People who have not developed symptoms will have successfully completed their quarantine and will be free to leave the base," Kaiser said Monday
