A sixth person who was previously aboard the Grand Princess Cruise ship that voyaged last month from San Francisco to Mexico is confirmed to have been infected with novel coronavirus.

The person, who did not feel well upon arriving home from the cruise, is a resident of Ventura County in Southern California, according to Ventura County Public Health. The patient has since remained at home with mild symptoms, according to county officials, only leaving to receive medical treatment.

The patient’s spouse, who also remains under home quarantine, was also on the cruise but does not have symptoms.

Some context: The California Department of Public Health notified Ventura County on March 4 that six of their residents had traveled on the cruise.  The county has contacted the four remaining passengers, one of whom is symptomatic and being tested at this time. The remaining three have no symptoms.

This latest infection brings the total number of confirmed cases in California to 56.
