A cruise ship with 12 Chinese nationals, who have experienced symptoms, docked in New Jersey Friday morning, where those individuals will be tested for coronavirus.

According to ABC affiliate WPVI-TV, the quarantined passengers will be tested by officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

An official told WPVI-TV there is no indication any of the passengers actually have the virus, but that the testing is being done out of an abundance of caution.
