DescriptionNew Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who traveled on Friday to Shanghai, China on an economic development trip, was placed in quarantine Sunday after Chinese officials found another passenger on his flight to have signs of the swine flu.

That passenger was undergoing quarantine and treatment. As a precaution, the mayor, his wife and another member of the Mayor's Executive Protection Unit were also placed in a designated quarantine location in Shanghai, according to the mayor's communications director.

He and his wife were displaying no symptoms of being ill, said Communications Director Ceeon D. Quiett. There was no word on what flight it was, how many people were aboard or exactly where they're quarantined.

Nagin was scheduled to travel to Sydney, Australia, where he is planning to deliver a keynote address and lead a panel discussion on climate change at the 2009 National Summit of the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney.

Quiett said the mayor may need to alter his travel schedule.
