We worked with the US authorities to arrange a repatriation flight for British nationals who were on the Grand Princess cruise ship, which landed at Birmingham Airport at 17:00 on 11 March. We liaised with the cruise company to ensure appropriate arrangements were in place to ensure passenger welfare and to get the passengers home safely. Public Health England advised all involved to self-isolate for 14 days and for COVID-19 tests to be arranged.
