You do you think cruise ships should be allowed to sail and cruises resume? You can currently get on a packed airline, stay in a hotel, visit Disney World and Six Flags, ride a subway, but cruises are still not allowed to sail.
The CDC is receiving comments from the general public for two more days on their website asking for public participation regarding the restart of cruises.
You can give your thoughts to the CDC here.
So far, just under 6,000 comments have submitted to the CDC pertaining to the planning/infrastructure and resumption of passenger operations.
The CDC has 28 different questions that you can respond to including:
- How frequently should cruise ship operators test all passengers and crew?
- What steps should cruise ship operators take to prevent the introduction of COVID-19 onto ships after resuming passenger operations?
- Should cruise ship operators plan to reduce passenger and crew loads to decrease the risk of transmission on board the ship?
- Should the cruise line industry immediately cancel cruise voyages if COVID-19 cases are identified on board or after disembarkation?
- Should cruise ship operators limit shore excursions?
The CDC is accepting comment until September 21, 2020. You can leave your comment to the CDC here.
