Their confinement is complete. The first returnees from Wuhan (China) were released on February 14 from their quarantine. In total, these 181 people spent 14 days in Carry-le-Rouet (Bouches-du-Rhône). Health officials wanted to make sure they could not spread Covid-19 coronavirus if they had been exposed to it.
The returnees were able to leave the site by bus. They were directed to the stations of Marseille and Aix-en-Provence or the airport of Marignane. None of them showed symptoms of the Covid-19 coronavirus. The first returnees were therefore all able to return home. Only 44 people, who later arrived by plane from China, are kept on the site.
