Covid-19 Outbreak on Grand Princess Cruise

by John Gomez | Last Updated: April 8, 2020

Grand Princess Covid-19 Cluster Outbreak

When the Grand Princess set sail for a 13-day trip, U.S. health authorities were already aware of and tracking several coronavirus cases involving passengers on the previous Grand Princess voyage. Ship leaders knew that passengers on the previous voyage had contracted the coronavirus, yet allowed current passengers to mingle, including some still on the ship who could have been exposed. If you or a loved one is currently struggling with the negligence of Grand Princess cruise then speak to the coronavirus attorneys at Gomez Trial Attorneys.

The Grand Princess later informed passengers of the concern via loudspeaker, but permitted the passengers aboard to gather for an evening meal. That next morning, passengers received letters explaining that only those that had been on the previous voyage needed to stay in their rooms. Although the crew began wearing gloves and wiping down handrails, passengers were not prohibited from gathering in large crowds. Later, the isolation order was extended to the entire ship, with passengers quarantined in their rooms. Crew members dropped off meals at their doors.

19 crew members and 2 passengers tested positive for COVID-19 while aboard the ship causing a cluster of covid-19 cases in a concentrated area. The passengers disembarked at the Port of Oakland and were transported to military bases, where they were quarantined for two weeks. Three people have since died.

Inspections of cruise ships, including the Grand Princess, administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are now under attack as investigations reveal that the inspections mask how frequently ships are cited for health and sanitation violations. The violations that potentially contributed to the spread of Covid-19.  Even when inspectors note multiple problems and violations, a ship can still earn a perfect inspection score. Princess ships consistently earn high ratings despite their passengers falling sick extraordinarily often. Along as with other cruises like Costa Luminosa Cruise Ship.
