Two federal health screeners at Los Angeles International Airport have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to an email sent to their colleagues late on Friday, according to a Reuters report on Saturday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employees were conducting secondary screenings of passengers arriving from overseas, including from China, and have been directed to self-quarantine until March 17, the email said.

“At this time, we cannot confirm where these two screeners were exposed,” said the email, which was sent by a senior CDC official.

“Let us keep our colleagues in our thoughts during this period.”
