How can you stay safe on board in a Quarantined Ship?


    A cruise ship in Japan is currently under quarantine with 3,700 people on board, after a former passenger was found infected with coronavirus. Ten more people on board have since tested positive for the illness.

    How to stay safe: Cruise ships have sometimes been called “floating Petri dishes” because guests stay close together in a contained area for extended periods of time.

    If you’re worried about your health on board, here are some tips:

    • Wash your hands frequently, not just before and after eating but whenever you touch shared surfaces like ship railings.
    • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, instead of your hand.
    • Avoid food and drink from questionable sources while on shore.
    • Keep your vaccinations up to date.
    • Those with underlying conditions or who are recovering from illness should consider postponing their travel, as they are more susceptible to viruses.

    Hygiene on board: Cruise ship companies try to prevent diseases by emphasizing hygiene — for example, having hand sanitizer stations easily accessible in common areas and requiring staff members who handle food to wear gloves.
