All the passengers had already been through two screenings in China and were screened twice more in Anchorage. Alaska’s Department of Health and Social Services says one passenger received medical attention for a minor injury that happened before boarding the airplane in China.  In California, they will undergo additional health screenings on Wednesday and be temporarily housed for a period of time.
