(Reuters) – Monday’s extension of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was due to concerns over the spreading of COVID-19 Delta variant.

Last October’s order required crewmembers to undergo testing as well as additional safety precautions, in preparation for the framework of a gradual resumption.

According to the public health agency, the extension contains minor modifications and will be lifted when it becomes a voluntary program. It will work with ship operators and control COVID-19 aboard cruise ships.

Even though the contagious strain was highly contagious, there were an increase in infection and hospitalizations earlier in the year in the United States. However, recent cases are starting to decline.

In May, the CDC took a critical step to ensure that U.S. cruise operations can resume by issuing updated technical instructions.
