CA - Live coronavirus updates: Grand Princess cruise ship to leave Port of Oakland tonight, Newsom says
The Grand Princess cruise ship is getting prepared to leave the Port of Oakland, Governor Gavin Newsom announced Sunday in a press conference.
He said the ship is scheduled to depart at 7 p.m. tonight.
It has been docked for nearly one week at the Port of Oakland's Outer Harbor Terminal, far away from Alameda, Oakland's Jack London Square and the Estuary. Still, there has been some local concern about its presence in the East Bay after several people on board tested positive for novel coronavirus.
