Washington – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended passengers around the world to postpone cruise travel due to the worrying spread of Covid-19.
The “Level 3″ notice verbatim states that ” CDC advises travelers to postpone all cruise travel around the world “.
The reason, as detailed by the agency, is that “the widespread and continuous spread of coronavirus disease ( Covid-19 ) has been reported in some countries “.
On April 9, 2020, July 16, 2020, and September 30, 2020, CDC extended the ban on cruises in U.S. waters.
The last suspension will remain in effect until one of the following situations occurs: the declaration by the Secretary of Health and Human Services that Covid-19 is no longer a public health emergency; the director of the CDC cancels or changes the order based on specific public health considerations; the obligation in force until 31 October 2020 expires and is not renewed.
Despite the ban on navigation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allow crew members to disembark from all cruise ships in US waters.
