USA Today reports:
The cruise line industry, which has been devastated by the coronavirus pandemic, submitted a report to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday with dozens of recommendations on how to prevent or mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on ships.
Royal Caribbean and Norwegian’s Healthy Sail Panel submitted the 66-page report in response to a CDC request for public comment following the implementation of its “no-sail” order, USA Today reported.
The report lists 74 recommendations for containing COVID-19, including testing five to 24 hours before boarding a cruise for passengers and crew members, daily temperature checks, and requiring passengers and crew members to wear cloth face coverings in accordance with CDC recommendations.
