You asked: Can we go on a cruise this summer?

Karen Edwards, professor and chair of the department of epidemiology at University of California at Irvine, says following … precautions is recommended for vaccinated and unvaccinated cruise travelers alike, though Edwards does not recommend someone take a cruise unless they have been fully immunized. “I would certainly keep up the good hygiene habits of hand washing, and I would wear my mask,” Edwards says. “I would just act as if I weren’t vaccinated, but at least feel a little more confident I’m protected against covid.”
