Multiple reports about the news conference of OC Mayor Jerry Demings, nothing out of WDW but Disney has taken guidance from Orange County regarding their current Covid standards.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings announced physical distancing requirements have been relaxed from 6ft to 3ft, effective immediately. This new minimum standard could pave the way for Disney World and other theme parks within Orange County to relax physical distancing within their theme parks – effectively doubling their current capacity restrictions.
While taking reporter questions, News 6 asked Mayor Demings, “Yesterday we had spoken about the theme parks, and you’re thinking they’re going to probably change things. A lot of things are outdoor, our theme parks and attractions — they have told us they’re going to rely on county leaders. Have there been any conversations, and what changes we can be seeing in our tourism district?”
Mayor Demings responded, “So in terms of have we had any communication with our theme parks, yes, we’ve had communication with them . They will make some adjustments .”
