According to the Oklahoma State Department of Health, officials are set to monitor Oklahoma travelers returning from a cruise for possible coronavirus.

Officials say there are 26 Oklahomans, out of 3,500 passengers, that are returning from the Grand Princess cruise ship, that docked in San Francisco.

OSDH officials say the passengers "will be screened once off the ship; those passengers with symptoms will be isolated."

Passengers without symptoms will be released to return to Oklahoma, officials say, and will be quarantined at home.

Both State and local officials will be in contact with the Grand Princess passengers to monitor for future symptoms, officials say.
