A court ruling may make it easier for cruise ships in Florida to resume sailing after a federal judge granted the state a preliminary injunction against the CDC
A Federal court in Tampa on Friday granted Florida a preliminary injunction against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) decision to prevent an immediate resumption of cruise operations.
The lawsuit was filed in April by Republican Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and the state had sought a quick lifting of a "nationwide lockdown" on the cruise industry that has been in place since March 2020.Early in the pandemic, there were dangerous outbreaks of COVID-19 on several cruise ships.
"The federal government does not, nor should it ever, have the authority to single out and lock down an entire industry indefinitely," Moody said.Florida, viewed as a hub for cruise operators, said its ports have suffered a decline in operating revenue of almost $300 million since the pandemic started.
The injunction is stayed until July 18, after which time the CDC's sailing order will only persist as a non-binding "consideration", the order said.The CDC was not immediately available for comment.The order also allowed the agency to propose a "narrower" injunction by July 2 to allow cruise ships to sail timely and remain within the agency's authority. headtopics.com

AGAINST THE CDC!?! THE STATE OF FLORIDA DOESNT KNOW BETTER THAN THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION!!!!! WHAT THE FCK!?! might as well the court take over the CDC since they know more about covid19 prevention and control I was reading multiple blogs on Facebook crew pages and $CCL is one of the most elitist amongst crew selection, they give preference only to American, English or Italian nationalities for management positions even if they don’t have skills. Lots of inequality CarnivalCruise
