Court grants relief against CDC order in cruise line lawsuit with Florida

(Reuters) - 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 order will prevent the agency from enforcing against a cruise ship arriving in, within, or departing from Florida.

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.

They were not singled out.Can’t put 4000 people in close contact.They can go with vaccine requirements at any time. That can be lifted if this virus is no longer a treat.De Santis is a nut job if he doesn’t see this. When they will go out and come back with infected people, that will put an end to De Santis and his political dream by not allowing them to check for vaccination. You can make an exemption and let the cruises check for vaccine and maybe in 6 months now is no longer needed.De Santis talking about winning, but he will lose big on this at the end.

If you’re that afraid of a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate as long as you’re not morbidly obese, then don’t go on a cruise. It’s that simple.

Jeffrey Vose  Isn't it amazing how these people feel that the rest of the world should be forced to live in fear because THEY are afraid?
