While there are guidelines for face masks and social distancing to keep everyone safe, there are some situations in the parks that may prevent Cast Members from maintaining the recommended six feet of distance from guests.
For example, some guests will need to have their height checked in order to confirm they are tall enough to safely ride an attraction. So, Unite Here Local 362 has confirmed a new safety measure to address such situations for attractions Cast Members! If an employee is unable to maintain social distancing due to the nature of their role, they will also be given a face shield to wear as a second barrier on top of their face mask.
Cast Members have already started to be called back to hotels, restaurants, festivals, and attractions in Disney World in preparation for the reopening of the parks next month. Upon reopening, many of the attractions throughout Disney World will be available.
We’ll be heading to the parks for live coverage of the reopenings to see what’s new around Disney World — including all the health and safety measures! So be sure to stay tuned!
