Reedy Creek Fire Department Reports Seven Walt Disney World Firefighters and EMTs Currently Under Quarantine for Coronavirus

As we continue to monitor the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on Disney Parks operations, a new development from the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the city-state that acts as Walt Disney World’s governmental agency, reports that seven (7) firefighters and emergency medical technicians have been put under quarantine due to Coronavirus concerns.

According to WFTV’s Lauren Seabrook, the Reedy Creek Firefighters Union has stated that seven (7) firefighters and/or EMTs who work in and around Walt Disney World are currently under quarantine. Out of the seven, six have just returned from a conference in Tampa where another attendee has since tested positive. The seventh quarantined member of RCFD had just returned from a trip to Vietnam and South Korea.

To reiterate, none of these firefighters or EMTs have been confirmed as being infected with the Coronavirus, but have been quarantined as a precaution.

We’ll be keeping our eyes on developments here in Florida and in California, as well as in Paris, and Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong regarding the COVID-19 outbreak’s effect on Disney Parks operations and beyond.

  1. Why is WDW still open when all other Disney Parks have been closed??? This seems wildly irresponsible!!

  2. How silly was this. The person who had returned from Vietnam and South Korea on return to the U.S.A. should put Him/Herself into a fortnight’s self isolation. Not go round letting workmates get close in Tampa. If R.C. Fire Dept. saw a fire would they know it was a fire? You wonder sometimes. Cheers, Chris Perry.
