CDC Lifts No Sail Order
The CDC has lift their No Sail Order and replaced it with a a "Conditional Sailing Order." "This 'Framework of Conditional Sailing' lays out a pathway – a phased, deliberate and intentional pathway – toward resuming passenger services but only when it is safe, when (the cruise industry) can assure health and when they are responsible with respects of needs of crew passengers and port communities," Dr. Martin Cetron, director of the CDC's Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, told USA TODAY Friday. In response CLIA has voluntarily suspended cruises until December 31, 2020. While sailing will not commence until 2021, cruise lines are preparing with enhanced policies recommended by the Health Sailing Panel.
