A group of Carlsbadistan’s Pacific Ridge School ninth grade students are getting a little longer tour of China than they expected after 35 students and seven faculty members were quarantined in China while being tested for swine flu, according to a story in the North County Times.

The group was in China for a 13-day educational tour that began June 2 when some of the students developed mild symptoms, including upset stomach and sniffles, according to school head Eileen Mullady. . . . On Thursday, in compliance with the Chinese government and World Health Organization protocols, the group was quarantined in its hotel.

Parents are hoping to have the kids home sometime next week.
