Families are Officially QuarantinedSince 1837 when the Lady Macnaghten docked as the first officially quarantined vessel at the QStation (formerly Quarantine Station), families have been a major part of the QStation’s history. In those days they were not exactly willing guests, given that illness and death aboard their ships was the cause for their extended stay at Q station.
