Update from Celebrity Regarding H1N1 Flu

The following press release was issued by Celebrity Cruises regarding the measures that they have taken throughout their fleet as a result of H1N1 (Swine) Flu:
Celebrity Cruises
Like our guests, we take all health matters seriously. Because of this, we continue to closely monitor H1N1 flu developments.

We continue to utilize our Influenza Prevention and Response Plans, which our office of Medical and Public Health developed in coordination with the CDC and other health experts. The plan is based on three pillars: Preparedness and Communication; Surveillance and Detection; and Response and Containment.

Some of the proactive measures we continue to take throughout our fleet include:

Providing guests with H1N1 flu information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Screening all ship visitors, including guests and crew members to identify any flu-like symptoms>
Conducting enhanced sanitizing of all high-touch areas onboard
Providing hand sanitizers throughout all ships
Asking guests to follow the advice of medical experts regarding the best ways to help prevent the spread of flu and other illnesses - via proper and frequent hand washing, and covering the mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
And, if necessary, our onboard medical staff can isolate and treat guests or crew members who display flu-like symptoms, using the supply of anti-viral medications kept onboard all our ships.

Additional information regarding the H1N1 flu, and the "Travel Health Precaution for Mexico" is available at the CDC website: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
