The cruise ship that spent days circling the waters off San Francisco with people sickened by the new coronavirus returned to land Monday at an isolated dock, to begin the long process of offloading passengers into quarantine.

The Grand Princess -- operated by Carnival Corp.’s Princess Cruises -- pulled into an unused dock at the Port of Oakland around noon local time, trailed by hovering news helicopters. At least 21 people on board have tested positive for the virus.
