NORTH PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Three North Palm Beach siblings, quarantined in China because of the H1N1 virus, are expected to be released Monday.

Elizabeth, Randall and Bryan Doane have been holed up in a Beijing hotel for the past seven days because someone on their plane had the virus. The teenagers never got sick.

They sent us pictures showing they have to stand behind a fence to talk to anyone outside the hotel.

Over the phone, they told us they've been bored and can't wait to get out. "Me and a couple of other kids, I know, have actually been waking up every hour like little kids before Christmas," said Elizabeth. "We're so excited; we don't know what to do with ourselves. It's kinda funny."

Once they are released, they plan to head straight to the Hard Rock Cafe. Then, one week late, begin their tour of China.
