As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, rules regarding masks, travel, and more in the U.S. and other countries continue to be discussed or changed depending on the circumstances.
So far, we’ve shared that the U.S. may be considering some domestic travel restrictions, COVID-19 testing is required for international flights coming into the U.S., and COVID-19 testing may be required for domestic flights in the future. But, now we’re seeing some important updates coming out of the United Kingdom that could seriously impact travel plans.
The pandemic has impacted a wide variety of industries, including the food service industry.
At Disney World alone, many restaurants closed and have yet to reopen, and many Cast Members from a variety of locations and areas have been let go. Are Disney World restaurants really just firing everyone? We’ve already shared with you that things are much more complicated than you think. But now, specific and direct relief for restaurants might be on the way in the form of a new bill introduced in Congress.
