Now, they are quarantined at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio.  

The couple says it was very challenging being trapped on the ship, and there were a log of logistics involved for the crew to deal with feeding everyone and delivering meals. They say despite it all, everyone kept a smile on their face. 

Now that they're at Lackland Air Force base, they say the quarantine is a little bit stricter. They say so far, they are not allowed to go outside. 

The couple says they still have not received a definite end date, but says Mar. 2 is the target date.
