Cruises can return after companies prove compliance using volunteer passengers on 'simulated voyages': CDC
A day before its No Sail Order is set to expire, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that cruise lines can resume operations after companies prove compliance using volunteer passengers on "simulated voyages."

"While we are eager to welcome our guests back on board, we have a lot to do between now and then, and we’re committed to taking the time to do things right," the company said.
It is not clear when the simulated voyages will begin.

Belgium introduces strict 'last-chance measures'
Belgium, Europe’s hardest-hit nation at this time, is introducing strict new rules.
Nonessential businesses are closing for six weeks and a nighttime curfew is in place. Outside gatherings are limited to three people, and residents can only have one person over to their home.

Belgium reported a 21.1% positivity rate on Tuesday. Last week, there were an average of 13,052 new cases reported each day.
