CDC Ends COVID Watch Program For Cruise Lines. What Can Go Wrong?

CDC Ends COVID Watch Program For Cruise Lines. What Can Go Wrong?

Via USA Today:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ended its COVID-19 Program for Cruise Ships on Monday. CDC has worked closely with the cruise industry, state, territorial, and local health authorities, and federal and seaport partners to provide a safer and healthier environment for cruise passengers and crew,” the agency’s website reads. “Cruise ships have access to guidance and tools to manage their own COVID-19 mitigation programs. The CDC added that “while cruising poses some risk of COVID-19 transmission, CDC will continue to publish guidance to help cruise ships continue to provide a safer and healthier environment for crew, passengers, and communities going forward.”

Whatever could go wrong? (We’ll know in a few months.)

Whoopsie! Anti-Vaxxer Eric Clapton Has COVID

Notorious and slightly insane rock legend and out spoken anti-vaxxer Eric Clapton has caught the COVID.

Via Clapton’s Facebook page:

Eric Clapton is unfortunately suffering from COVID having tested positive shortly after the second concert at the Royal Albert Hall. He has been told by his medical advisors that if he were to resume traveling and performing too soon, it could substantially delay his full recovery. It is very frustrating that having avoided COVID throughout lockdown and throughout the period when travel restrictions have been in place Eric should have succumbed to COVID at this point in time.

Clapton has said in the past repeatedly that he wouldn’t do shows at venues that required COVID protocols like proof of vax but is now canceling shows because he got it.

AWKWARD.

But not as awkward as is will be after all his past complaining about the vaccine and COVID protocols if Clapton winds up Knockings On Heaven’s Door.
