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.)
