    Distributed via the CDC Health Alert Network March 15, 2020, 5:45 PM ET Updated: March 17, 2020, 12:10 PM ET CDCHAN-00430 This HAN Update was updated on March 17, 2020 to include additional pre-travel advice about in-cabin isolation if patients become sick during a cruise and 14-day quarantine following completion of any cruise. This language is consistent with CDC’s new Level 3 Travel Warning for cruise ships. See the Recommendations for Clinicians (#1e) and State and Local Health Departments sections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all persons defer any travel on cruise ships, including river cruises, worldwide because of the increased risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission onboard ships. Deferring travel is especially important for older adults and all people with serious chronic medical conditions (such as heart disease, diabetes or lung disease), because of their increased risk for severe disease. This health update provides information to clinicians and state and local health departments about the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation and the risks associated with travel on cruise ships, including river cruises.
