A spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) provided Patch with the following statement about the incident:
“On Tuesday evening, an asymptomatic individual who traveled from China to Newark Liberty International Airport was issued a mandatory quarantine order. While the individual did not present any symptoms, they were in Hubei Province on Feb. 4 and therefore were issued a 14-day quarantine order. The individual, who is not a New Jersey resident, was transported to a location in Essex County, and the New Jersey Department of Health will monitor the individual for symptoms for the next 14 days.”
