UnCruise Guests Quarantined, Undergoing Tests - Juneau Empire
After a guest tested positive for the coronavirus, UnCruise canceled an Aug. 1 sailing, returning its guests to Juneau and quarantining them in a prearranged contingency, said the company’s CEO.
“We respond and do our best,” said CEO Dan Blanchard in a phone interview Thursday.
All 36 guests are quarantined while testing and contract tracing is ongoing, Blanchard said. UnCruise is paying for meals, lodging and security for the duration. As guests are tested and contacts are traced, they may be released from quarantine, but the cluster around the infected individual will likely be in for the long haul.
