One of the two Santa Clarita residents who were quarantined on the Diamond Princess has been confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus after arriving in the United States Monday.
Carl Goldman and Jeri Seratti-Goldman, owners and operators of KHTS Radio, flew in to Omaha, Nebraska from Travis Air Force Base.
Once they arrived, Carl was taken to the hospital after he came down with a fever. He has since tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Jeri.
“Even though I have a cough, still no temperature,” Jeri said. “Carl’s temperature had gone down on the last flight from Travis Air Force base to Nebraska.”
As of Monday night, Carl’s fever had broken and he was walking around, and Jeri had tested negative, according to officials.
The Santa Clarita residents are being housed in quarantine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, according to officials.
There are three patients, including Carl, being held in the University of Nebraska Medical Center hospital and their spouses are in separate rooms, according to Jeri Seratti-Goldman.
“It’s going to be difficult to be all by myself here for 14 days,” Jeri said. “No clothes, no toothbrush, no brush, no nothing… They said maybe they would provide sweats and a toothbrush. Some shampoo would be nice. Just some general stuff to clean up. This is my life for the next 14 days, by myself.
The Goldmans were two of the hundreds of United States citizens quarantined on the Diamond Princess, along with their traveling companion who had tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
Thirteen of the “high risk” patients were transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where one patient is being monitored in the biocontainment area.
Regardless of individuals testing positive for COVID-19, all will be held for 14 days, according to University of Nebraska Medical Center officials.
