At top of the week, Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statement regarding the current status of coronavirus in Florida.
He disclosed there were two confirmed cases of coronavirus in the state of Florida and that the patients have been isolated and are being monitored closely.
But amid the growing concerns as to whether or not the U.S. theme parks would be closing soon in the wake of Hong Kong Disneyland, Shanghai Disneyland, and Toyko Disney Resort shuttering their doors, Disney has given the following statement.
A spokesperson for Disney told People yesterday, “We know there is new information this week about Coronavirus in Florida. We have very stringent sanitation procedures in place at Walt Disney World Resort.
We are in close contact with health agencies for information and guidance, and at this time, we are continuing to communicate to our Cast the importance of preventative measures such as frequent handwashing and rigorous cleaning processes.
For guest convenience, we have placed additional hand sanitizers throughout our parks and resorts and will adjust our protocols as the situation warrants.”
We’ll continue to monitor the coronavirus news closely and update you if and when Disney releases any more information!
