Local man released from quarantine in Hong Kong

Staff report
Cameron Kirker, the Rowan County resident quarantined in Hong Kong after staying at a hotel where another traveler was confirmed to have swine flu, has been cleared to leave, his wife said Friday.
“He’s coming home Monday night, but real late,” Carol Kirker said.
Kirker was in Hong Kong with his business partner, Peter Cannon of Columbia, S.C. The men weren’t at the Metropark Hotel at the same time as a Mexican traveler staying there who was later found to have the virus, and they exhibited no symptoms, but Chinese officials said they isolated them as a precaution.
Kirker and Cannon were among several hundred hotel guests released from quarantine Friday. They were met by cheering spectators and the media.
“I just came home and turned on the TV, and there’s my husband’s face,” Carol Kirker said.
