Quarantine to end Feb. 19
Diamond Princess has been quarantined in Yokohama since Monday. The Japanese Ministry of Health has confirmed this is the last batch of people to be tested and the quarantine will end Feb. 19, unless there are any unforeseen developments.
Princess said the Japanese government is also providing the ship and team members additional manpower support.
Passengers continue to be provided free Internet and phone service to stay in contact with their family and loved ones. Princess has added live television channels and a large selection of in-room movies available in multiple languages. The cruise activities staff is packaging games, puzzles and trivia and delivering them to staterooms.
Diamond Princess was carrying 2,666 passengers and 1,045 crew from a range of nationalities when it arrived at Yokohama on Monday. About half the passengers are from Japan.
Local health authorities have been on board conducting screenings after a man on the prior sailing was later diagnosed with coronavirus at a Hong Kong hospital.
