In Episode 1 of the GPHS podcast Season 2, David Forney and Jon Schnoor discuss CDC requirements on the critical framework for conditional sailing and focus the discussion on the topic: restarting cruise operations. What requirements will it take to cruise again? They say that the cruise lines have worked very hard at developing protocols to ensure that cruising is a very healthy place to be, the CDC's guidance, the conditional sailing order, is being updated on a daily basis, and things are still changing regularly within the industry itself, with experts from all over the world coming and working together to make the changes that will lead to realizing required public health performances. In their shared expertise on cruise line public health, David and Jon guide us in understanding compliance requirements, and what is entailed in restarting cruise line operations. Happy listening!
