CDC has new PDF forms for reporting shipboard death, illness

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention changed the method for reporting death and non-gastrointestinal illness aboard ships destined for a US port of entry.

The Division of Global Migration and Quarantine will no longer accept death and illness reports via the Maritime Illness and Death Reporting System website or MIDRS e-mail after June 10.

Instead, operators are to download and submit fillable PDF forms.

Guidance on reporting requirements for cruise ships and the forms are here.

The new reporting method became effective March 10.
