CDC proclaims steering for cruise ship certification

Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines for cruise lines to conduct simulated voyages with volunteer passengers as part of their COVID-19 Conditional Sailing Certificate.

  1. Applying for the COVID-19 Conditional Sailing Certificate is the last step before restricted passenger journeys.
  2. Cruise ship operators now have all the requirements and recommendations needed to start simulated voyages before resuming restricted passenger travel.
  3. The CDC will continue to update its guidelines and recommendations to establish basic public health safety standards and interventions.

In addition, this version includes the application of the COVID-19 certificate for conditional sailing. This is the final step before restricted passenger travel.

CDC released the CSO in October 2020 to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 on cruise lines, from cruise lines to communities, and to protect public health and safety. The contract introduced a step-by-step approach to resuming passenger cruises to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading on board.
