CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - A dozen Pacific Ridge School teachers and students have returned to California after people they were traveling with tested positive for swine flu during a trip to China.
The group landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday night after being quarantined in China for a week, and another group is expected later Saturday, bringing the total of those who have returned to 29.
School spokeswoman Anne Carr says there are still five students in a Chinese hospital awaiting final test results before they can be released. A teacher stayed to supervise them.
On June 2, the group of 35 ninth-graders left for China and visited the Great Wall and other historic sites before a few students began to feel ill.
It's unknown how the illness was contracted.
