Free Testing Ending in July Leaving Cruise Lines with No Good Options
Federal money has dried up for free COVID testing and this is really bad for cruise line passengers. Airlines no longer require a test but cruise ships do. Since you can no longer get a free test at Walgreens and other retailers it leaves cruise passengers with less options for pre-cruise testing which must be done within 3 days of your cruise. There are at-home tests that can be bought and also some insurance will cover a test, but there is still money involved in these options. County governments are all scrambling to solve the problem but this means there is no clear answer. See below news report for more.
