ISS Crew Might Be Quarantined in Kazakhstan after Landing in April
The International Space Station (ISS) crew could be placed in two-week quarantine after landing in Kazakhstan on April 17, chief epidemiologist at Gagarin Research and Cosmonaut Training Center, Sergei Savin said.
“In Kazakhstan, as in Russia, all arrivals from abroad have to be sent into a 14-day quarantine. Most likely, this requirement will also apply to Oleg Skripochka after his return from the ISS. The entire traditional program for post-flight rehabilitation is currently in question,” Savin said.
Currently, the ISS crew is comprised of Russian cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka and NASA astronauts Andrew Morgan and Jessica Meir. On April 9, Russian spacemen Anatoli Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, and U.S. astronaut Christopher Cassidy are expected to replace them.
