Cruise ship the Ruby Princess, which has a fully vaccinated only policy for both its staff and passengers, has suffered a COVID outbreak before docking in San Francisco.
According to its website, Princess Cruises requires people show both proof of 'full vaccination' and evidence of a negative COVID test before boarding the ship, but despite these rules people aboard have tested positive for Covid-19.
The company did not say how many people tested positive but said those infected were “isolated and quarantined while monitored and cared for by our shipboard medical team.”.
As with all Princess itineraries, this cruise is operated as a vaccinated cruise, as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” the company told the San Francisco Chronicle. “Guests and crew vaccination rates were at 100 percent.” The ship was on a 15-day cruise to the Panama Canal and had docked in San Francisco on Sunday when the outbreak happened.
Some of those affected had reported that upon getting the booster they were given 8 testing kits FREE. Yes, a vaccine so effective that they give you a load of testing kits after you've had the FOURTH dose of it.
