Edmond Couple Aboard Quarantined Grand Princess Cruise Ship Returns Home
An Edmond couple is back home after disembarking from the Grand Princess cruise ship.
Governor Kevin Stitt announced that 26 Oklahoman’s are back in the state after being quarantined on the ship.
Among the Oklahoman’s on board were Darrell and Teresa Roberts. The two were on the ship celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
“We feel great,” said Darrell.
“We feel really good and we are happy to be home,” said Teresa.
While on the ship the two said they never experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, so they never had to be tested.
“We never even had a temperature check,” said Teresa. “Only people that showed signs of the coronavirus were swabbed. Those tests were flown in by helicopter and those were the first people taken off of the ship.”
The Roberts returned back to Edmond late Saturday night.
“We were quarantined on the ship for ten days and now two days at home,” said Darrell.
The two will have to stay quarantined at home for a full two weeks before they are cleared. While monitoring for any symptoms of COVID-19, the couple said they will also be checked on by health officials three times a week.
“We are so thankful for our state leadership,” said Teresa. “They brought us home and we have to follow the guidelines and we are happy to do that.”
