[excerpt] [quote=LisaP;..... I can't comment on this next aspect as it pertains to Carnival as I simply don't recall it one way or the other -- yet, Holland America Line mandates that crew in the buffet serve food to passengers for the first 48 hours rather than having passengers take turns at the tongs. This minimizes the spread of any infection that pax may have brought onboard......
My daughter works as a dancer with Carnival and if more than 3 people report to the infirmary with symptoms they start serving the buffet line, So probably the same as Holland America. It would not surprise me if that was mandated
