American Evacuees From The Growing Coronavirus Outbreak In China Will Be Landing In Omaha

Federal officials say one or more planes carrying American evacuees from the growing coronavirus outbreak in China will be landing in Omaha.

Officials say these passengers will arrive at Eppley Airfield in a remote and isolated aircraft parking area and will NOT be inside the Eppley Airfield terminal. Nebraska National Guard officials have been preparing to house some in 85 rooms at Camp Ashland, a guard training base 30 miles from the airport.

Nebraska Medicine/UNMC and a number of other federal, state and local agencies are supporting this effort. Specific details will be released at a news conference tomorrow morning.
