Time to slip on those flip flops and smack some sunblock on your nose — the CDC has lifted its risk advisory for cruise ship travel on Wednesday, following two years of warnings and limitations to travelers about the possibility of contracting Covid-19 onboard a cruise.
The last warning was three months ago, where the CDC increased its travel warnings for cruises to Level4 — the highest level — following investigations of ships that had Covid outbreaks.
Now, the CDC has lifted its travel health notice, saying it’s up to the passengers to determine their own health risks before going onboard a cruise ship. While traveling and cruise, there will always pose some risk of Covid-19 transmission, travels will. Now need to make their own risk assessment when choosing to travel on a cruise ship, much like other travel settings.
The CDC will continue to provide guidance to the cruise ship industry in order for cruise lines to operate in a way that will provide “safer and healthier” environments for crews, passengers, and communities.
