WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence says 21 people on a cruise ship being held off San Francisco have tested positive for coronavirus.
He also urged older Americans to “use caution” in planning any cruise ship vacation.
Speaking at the White House on Friday, Pence said the government is planning to bring the Grand Princess cruise ship into a “non-commercial port” where all the passengers and crew will be tested.
Those who need to be quarantined will be quarantined and those who need treatment will get treatment.
There are more than 3,500 people on the ship, counting passengers and crew.
