  • Description:
    Outbreaks of influenza and other respiratory viral diseases can occur at any time of the year among cruise ship passengers and military personnel aboard ships. Early detection, prevention, and control of influenza are important, not only to protect the health of travelers on cruise ships, but also to avoid spread of disease into home communities by disembarking ill passengers and crew members. This document provides interim guidance for cruise ships originating from or stopping in the United States, to help prevent, diagnose, and control outbreaks of influenza-like illness (ILI). This guidance will be updated as needed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes that cruise ships travel worldwide, necessitating awareness of and responsiveness to local jurisdictional requirements. Cruise ship management and medical staff need to be flexible in identifying and caring for persons with ILI. The health care provider’s assessment of a patient’s clinical presentation and underlying risk factors is always an essential part of decisions about the need for further medical evaluation, testing, and treatment.
