CDC urges Americans to avoid cruise travel over COVID

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday that Americans should avoid cruise travel regardless of whether they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or not.

"Even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants," the CDC noted in a statement in which it raised COVID-19 Travel Health Notice level for cruise ships to the highest warning level of four.

The recommendation comes as the country reports the highest number of new daily infections since the start of the pandemic, ranging up to nearly half a million cases per day.
