OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A woman has returned to Camp Ashland for quarantine after testing negative for coronavirus on Saturday, officials with Nebraska Medicine say.

After undergoing two tests 24-hours apart, Nebraska Medicine officials say she tested negative for both.

She returned to Camp Ashland for the remaining days of the quarantine where 56 others are being monitored.

If everyone at Camp Ashland remains without symptoms, the group will depart at 9 a.m. on Feb. 20.
