BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - WLOX News has confirmed the 15 Seabees from NMCB 133 were released from quarantine at Langley Air Force Base this morning.

We're told those Seabees will stay in the Virginia area for a few days to finish up some administrative stuff. From there, they will continue on with their deployment. Some of the Seabees will return to Spain. The rest of the unit will head back to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti. 

The 21 day quarantine was ordered by the military because the Seabees were in West Africa assisting in the Ebola-stricken country. Military leaders said the Seabees were not in contact with anyone infected by Ebola. 

Their deployment is expected to end in mid-January.
