Ship quarantine in St. Lucia, measles

Recommended Posts

This morning's news mentions that an unnamed ship has been quarantined (no one allowed off the ship) in St. Lucia due to an individual with measles.

Anyone know anything more?

According to NBC news it's  true.

Seems it's a small cruise ship with about 300 passengers and crew.

That's all the details I have.  Hopefully, some of you will know more.

Yes, I read that too. Is anyone else worried about anti-vaxxers on the cruises? I'm supposedly immune to MMR because I had the vaccine in the 90s (per infectious disease doctor). I'm sailing at the end of the month and I hope there are no other crazy outbreaks...

Worried?  I'm not worried about them.  Personally I'm delighted that they may experience some degree of panic - just like the parents of medically fragile kids panic when they realize that their child may be exposed to some awful disease because other parents think they're smarter than the medical community.  Sorry, just my personal opinion.
