the expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that COVID-19 constitutes a public health emergency

 

Not yet......

 

The Public Health Emergency Status in the United States has been extended again for the sixth time. A declaration that the Public Health Emergency is over would have meant that the conditions in which cruise ships are operating under the Conditional Sail Order would effectively be over.

 

It is not to be as Secretary of Health, and Human Services Xavier Becerra extended the health emergency on July 19. A declaration of a public health emergency ensures government organizations have far-reaching power to ensure the health and safety of the general public.

 

Previously the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC, declared the No Sail order for cruise ships from and inside the US under this status and the current Conditional Sail Order.

Conditional Sailing Order Stands Firm

The extension of the Public Health Emergency confirms once again that the Conditional Sail Order, which operates under the Public Health Emergency Status, is here to stay. Each extension of the emergency status is for an additional 90 days, meaning the current extension brings us to the end of October.

 

The Conditional Sail Order can be rescinded in three ways, either through the end of the Public Health Emergency, the CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific public health or other considerations; or November 1, 2021, when the original order is set to expire. However, even at this point, the CDC director could choose to extend the order again if the agency feels there are still significant risks to cruising.

The CSO, yes, but without the extension the HHS secretary could have ended it by declaring the health emergency over.

Is this just an old story resurrected?  By the way there is an interesting story in the WP about testing vaccinated people and overstating impact of Delta variant. https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2021/07/21/covid-testing-vaccinated/  Something I have wondered about is if vaccinated...but no symptoms and you test positive do you really have it.. or are they just picking up insignificant quantities of virus?

Unless you are wearing an N95 or equivalent mask, your mask protects others around you. That is what source control is all about. Surgical and cloth masks do very little to protect the wearer. 

And that’s what I’ve been wearing since April 2020.  No cloth or paper masks for me.  No bandanas either.
