Hundreds of soldiers returning to Fort Bragg after 9-month deployment are quarantined

Hundreds of Fort Bragg soldiers are quarantined after returning from deployment Saturday.

The 300 paratroopers with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team were deployed in Afghanistan for nine months and will be quarantined for at least 14 days as a precaution amid the spread of coronavirus across the country, The Fayetteville Observer reports.

U.S. Army officials told the Associated Press the quarantine is just precautionary and, as of Saturday, no one in the unit or on the base had tested positive for COVID-19.
