Kathryn Watson, a White House reporter for CBS News, floated total vaccine segregation as a viable option in response to mounting complaints about restrictions the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has imposed on the cruise industry, requiring nearly everyone aboard to be vaccinated. Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean is implementing a workaround, offering segregated areas for the unvaccinated, for ships sailing out of Florida, which has banned the use of vaccine passports.
“Easy, one boat for vaccinated people, another for unvaccinated people,” Watson wrote in response to a Bloomberg article, highlighted by Bloomberg Senate reporter Steven Dennis, detailing the concerns and logistics of the cruise industry resuming in a world containing a mixed bag of both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. He appeared to mock unvaccinated individuals as well.
