They equate cruise ships to prisons and other institutions.

Yes, which is strange because people staying at casinos for a weeks vacation experience very similar conditions to cruise ships. Eat at hotel buffets, gamble on crowded casino floor, see shows all without leaving hotel. And they arent outside as much as people on a cruise typically

They see it as a high risk situation because we are "trapped" on the ship. Its ridiculous. Being on a cruise is no different than staying at all all inclusive resort,  or to your point, a casino.

There are ways to deal with the unlikely event that someone does come down with Covid. The cruise lines have a great plan for this.

Looks like the CDC is contradicting themselves again...

People vaccinated against Covid-19 can go without masks indoors and outdoors, CDC says:

Not contradicting. The political winds have changed this week. Bad job numbers, inflation, gas shortage, Middle East crisis. The terrible showing of CDC and Walensky in the Congressional Hearings this week. The administration ordered the CDC to do this today. Its all political and has nothing to do with science

WooHoo...my mask is now history!!  Of course, I will keep it handy for certain circumstances...per CDC: The requirement to wear masks during travel -- on buses, trains, planes and public transportation -- still stands, Walensky said, and guidance for travel will be updated as science emerges.

#Gears...thanks for providing the updated info!
