With all of the recent concern about coronavirus outbreak and its spread to other countries outside of China, many countries, like Italy, are placing travel restrictions due to isolated outbreaks. Despite Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland being closed indefinitely, all Disney Parks outside of China remain open. However, precautions are being taken to avoid further spread of the virus. At Tokyo Disney Resort, they’ve outright asked guests who are sick to refrain from visiting the parks and resorts. Now, a group of Cast Members who work at Walt Disney World have been asked to stay home after a trip to Italy.
According to WESH 2 News, a Walt Disney World spokesperson confirmed that a small number of individuals who work at Disney, but are not all Disney employees, have been asked to stay home due to coronavirus concerns.
The spokesperson said there are no confirmed or suspected cases of coronavirus at Disney and nobody who was on the trip to Italy has shown any symptoms of the virus.
Disney said the decision to keep the workers at home was made from “an abundance of caution.” The exact number of workers involved was not immediately available. At this time, there are no confirmed or suspected cases of coronavirus at Walt Disney World.
