Hopefully this is not against the new policy put in place on the site:

https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2021/06/21/tampa-judge-blocks-cdc-order-keeping-cruise-ships-from-sailing

 

“With the advent of highly effective vaccines, with more than half of adults fully vaccinated, with infection plummeting, with death from COVID-19 asymptotically approaching zero; with the benefit of effective therapeutics for COVID-19; with masks, safe distancing, and sanitation; and with the successful and safe re-opening of business, including airlines, sporting events, and other high capacity venues, COVID-19 no longer threatens the public’s health to the same extent presented at the start of the pandemic or when CDC issued the conditional sailing order,” the Tampa-based judge wrote.

Merryday, however, put a stay on the preliminary injunction until July 18. At that time, he wrote, “the conditional sailing order and the measures promulgated under the conditional sailing order will persist as only a non-binding ‘consideration,’ ‘recommendation’ or ‘guideline,’ the same tools used by CDC when addressing the practices in other similarly situated industries, such as airlines, railroads, hotels, casinos, sports venues, buses, subways and others.”

  • SelectSys changed the title to Injunction against CDC granted in Florida

This was a temporary injunction as was noted. If anyone thinks that being on a plane, bus, or train (by the way a person still must be masked by Executive Order, not the CDC), is the same thing as being on a cruise ship for days on end, they are truly idiots.

The CDC filed an appeal and requested a stay of the preliminary injunction that came out of district court/Merryday.   This is heading to the 11th circuit of appeals.  And if you think either party won't appeal it up the chain after that, you're dreaming.  But the CSO will run out or a new one will be issued by the time the Supreme Court can pick the case up/if it chooses to.

If they want to fight it, good. Let them. However, make ONE SET of rules that is 100% the same across all business, government buildings, and public areas. No rules specific to any singled out group. The CDC can make up what they want, but that one set of rules applies to everything. If they want 6' distance for all groups that spend more than 15-minutes together, great. Just apply it to every setting in the US. You want the big industry for this one...public schools. The uproar will be insane.

Scientifically, the restrictions should depend on the setting and the risk. It is impossible to create one set of rules that cover every situation.
