CDC Recommendation
« on: January 02, 2022, 05:02:44 PM »
CDC increased the Cruise Travel Health Notice to a Level 4, recommending people avoid cruise travel regardless of vaccination status, in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases occurring on cruise ships in the US and around the world.

Not to say it isn't a concern but the number of people it takes to get to level 4 isn't that great.
I suspect it's just as dangerous to shop at our local Walmart during a busy hour.

"A dozen COVID cases were discovered just days after the CDC raised its risk level for cruise travel to the highest category.  They say the virus spreads easily between people in close quarters aboard ships and that people should avoid traveling on cruise ships regardless of vaccination status."

Unless they cancel my upcoming trip I'm still going to take a chance and go. The effects of catching this Omicron virus doesn't seem to be that bad.
