SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Two couples have returned to the United States after they were quarantined on a cruise ship to be monitored for coronavirus.

Cheryl and Paul Molesky, of Syracuse, and Cindy and Pete Molesky, of Rome, were evacuated from the Diamond Princes Cruise ship after passengers started testing positive for the virus. 

The four opted to fly back to the United States, where they would re-enter quarantine for another two weeks.

Cindy and Pete are at an Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas, while they are being monitored.

“We just got here this morning -- early, early this morning -- and we’ll be here for another two weeks until we’re cleared to go back home,” said Cindy.

The couple was already quarantined for two weeks while on the cruise ship.
