CDC Updates Guidance and Travel Health Notice for Cruising – DCL Fan

As we formerly reported, the Conditional Sail Order that was place out by the Centers for Sickness Command and Prevention expired on January 15, 2022.

Previously this 7 days, the CDC issued “optional guidance” – COVID-19 Program for Cruise Ships – for the cruise sector likely forward and has provided cruise lines the deadline of February 18, 2022, to either decide-in or out of its optional application. On February 22, 2022, if cruise strains have not informed the CDC of their determination to participate in the software, their ships will automatically be designated as “Gray” indicating they are not taking part in CDC’s COVID-19 Application for Cruise Ships as proven in the picture below.

As of the time of this submit, the Disney Dream and Disney Magic are both in the Orange “not highly vaccinated” status with the Disney Fantasy also remaining in Orange but “highly vaccinated” standing. The Disney Speculate is in yellow “not highly vaccinated” standing.

As part of CDC’s COVID-19 Program for Cruise Ships, a new cruise ship vaccination standing classifications tier has been extra and is now defined in the technological recommendations as:

  • Not Remarkably Vaccinated: ships with considerably less than 95% travellers and 95% crew who are entirely vaccinated.
  • Remarkably Vaccinated: ships with at least 95% passengers and 95% crew who are thoroughly vaccinated, but with considerably less than 95% of passengers and 95% of crew who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Vaccination Normal of Excellence: ships with at the very least 95% passengers and 95% crew who are up to day with their COVID-19 vaccines.

Again on December 30, 2021, the CDC elevated the COVID-19 Vacation Wellness Discover amount from Degree 3 to Stage 4, the best amount, and it still continues to be there.
