“CLIA Members have suspended crew movements from mainland China and will deny boarding to any individual, whether guest or crew, who has traveled from or through mainland China within the previous 14 days,” CLIA said in a statement provided by Bari Golin-Blaugrund, senior director of strategic communications.

Members of CLIA include Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival, MSC Cruises, among several others.

Nearly 10,000 people have contracted the virus worldwide, with over 400 dead in China since it emerged in the city of Wuhan.
