In February 2020, Courter was one of 3,700 passengers and crew quarantined on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, which was held in port at Yokohama, Japan during the coronavirus outbreak. In an interview with The New York Times, Courter questioned the efficacy of keeping passengers quarantined on board the ship, where the virus was rapidly spreading. The Atlantic published a piece by Courter, detailing her trip in Asia, her time on the Diamond Princess, and her experience in quarantine once back in the United States. Courter feared she and her husband would suffer from symptoms of PTSD, and those experiences later became the book, Quarantine! How I Survived the Diamond Princess Cornonavirus Crisis.
