By BBN Staff: The United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) is allowing cruise ships to sail again on the condition that they do so without passengers, according to People Magazine.
The CDC has updated its conditional sailing order, which becomes effective today, November 1, for cruise ships to begin a phased approach sailing again. The CDC said that the updated conditional sail order and accompanying “framework of actionable items” applies to sups sailing in US waters with a capacity of at least 250 passengers and makes for a “phased approach for the safe and responsible resumption of passenger cruises.”
The CDC is requiring that all cruise companies, during the initial phases of the resumption of voyages, to have additional testing and social distancing requirements and operate mock voyages using crew members as passengers to see how implementing those safety measures will work.
“This framework provides a pathway to resume safe and responsible sailing. It will mitigate the risk of COVID-19 outbreaks on ships and prevent passengers and crew from seeding outbreaks at ports and in the communities where they live,” explained CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D.
“CDC and the cruise industry have a shared goal to protect crew, passengers, and communities and will continue to work together to ensure that all necessary public health procedures are in place before cruise ships begin sailing with passengers.”
