GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
On April 1, the U.S. Coast Guard ordered cruise ships in U.S. waters to be sequestered indefinitely to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As of earlier this month, more than 12,000 crew members remain stuck on cruise ships in U.S. waters, most unable to go home because of travel restrictions. According to a report by USA Today, the Coast Guard continues to track "57 cruise ships moored, at anchor, or underway in vicinity of a U.S. port, or with potential to arrive in a U.S. port." www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2020/08/08/cruise-ships-us-have-12000-crew-members-amid-covid-19/5574288002/
