As part of its Phased Approach to the Resumption of Passenger Operations, CDC will collect information from cruise ships operating or intending to operate in U.S. waters. This phased approach includes increased reporting of COVID-19 and COVID-19 like illnesses as well as a number of information collections designed to ensure cruise ships can prevent, detect, and respond to outbreaks of COVID-19. This Non-Substantive Change Request is submitted to add an Attestation by A Cruise Ship Operator In Lieu Of A Simulated Voyage Form, and to make minor edits to the Enhanced Data Collection (EDC) During COVID-19 Pandemic Form. This Non-Substantive Change Request results in no additional changes to currently approved information collection instruments and no change in burden hours.
On October 30, 2020, CDC announced a Framework for Conditional Sailing Order for cruise ships through November 1, 2021 to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 from cruise ships into communities and protect public health and safety. The requirements in the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order highlight the need for further action before cruise ships can safely resume passenger operations in the United States. CDC will require a phased approach to resuming passenger operations. During the initial phases, cruise ship operators must demonstrate adherence to testing, quarantine and isolation, and social distancing requirements to protect crew members while they build the laboratory capacity needed to test future passengers. Subsequent phases include simulated voyages to test cruise ship operators’ ability to mitigate COVID-19 risk, certification for ships that meet specific requirements, and return to passenger voyages in a manner that mitigates COVID-19 risk among passengers, crew members, and communities. CDC’s Framework for Conditional Sailing Order prohibits a cruise ship operator from commencing or continuing any passenger operations without a COVID-19 Conditional Sailing Certificate issued by HHS/CDC. CDC requests that the proposed project, COVID-19 Conditional Sailing Certificate be processed in accordance with section 1320.13, Emergency Processing. CDC has determined that this information is essential to CDC’s COVID-19 emergency response. Unrestricted cruise ship travel has the potential to exacerbate and amplify the spread of SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) the virus that causes COVID-19. While the actions taken by cruise ship operators to advance their public health response to COVID-19 are encouraging, further public health oversight is needed to provide uniform standards for mitigating the communicable disease risk to crew and prospective passengers as the industry attempts to move towards limited passenger oper
