What to know about the travel agency crisis that has killed dozens of travelers
The travel agency Crisis Travel Protection Agency has shut down its operations in several states after hundreds of travelers were killed during a mass shooting.
The agency says it is working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state and local law enforcement to find a way to reopen operations.
“The crisis is still unfolding,” said Dr. Jennifer C. Anderson, a CDC official, in a statement.
“The number of people who have been injured and killed is still unknown, and we are working to find the best way forward.
We will update you as we learn more.”
Travelers, including some of the most well-known names in travel, have been calling for more than two weeks for the agency to be allowed back to resume operations.
They said the agency has allowed in a handful of travelers and that they are willing to pay the $400 to $500 to be released from a quarantine.
“This has been an incredibly difficult time for all of us,” said one of the organizers of the Travel Workers Alliance, a travel advocacy group.
“There is no one who has been more touched by this tragedy than we have.
We want to see this resolved quickly.”
