CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (WESH) – The CDC has renewed and extended its no sail order for cruise ships by at least 100 days.
The original order was put in place on March 13 and was supposed to extend for 30 days.
The no sail order was put in place because the CDC director believed that cruise ship travel would continue to introduce, transmit and spread COVID-19.
The order will stay in place until the Secretary of Health and Human Services no longer considers COVID-19 a public health emergency, the CDC director rescinds or modifies the order, or 100 days pass.
