Canadian Transport Minister bans all Cruise ships until November

Canada is extending a ban on large cruise ships through to 31 October 2020, in order to to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said on Friday. 

He said…”I understand that this will have a big economic impact on the tourism industry and that the government is looking at what to do about that.”

“Cruise ships with overnight capacity for more than 100 crew and passengers will not be allowed to operate in Canadian waters at least until November.”

The ban on large cruise ships, many of which were hit by COVID-19 outbreaks, began in March.
