Gov. Gavin Newsom said late Wednesday the cruise ship won't be allowed to come ashore until state officials appropriately assess the passengers and the vessel. "It's a dynamic situation," Mr. Newsom said in a press briefing.

Officials of Carnival's Princess Cruises said in a letter early Wednesday to passengers that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had notified them it was investigating "a small cluster" of Wuhan coronavirus cases in Northern California tied to the same ship's voyage in February between San Francisco and Mexico.
