PHOTOS, VIDEO: Temperature Screenings, Hand Washing Stations, and More Health and Safety Modifications Throughout Disney Springs

As Disney Springs prepares for its reopening tomorrow, new signage has been posted throughout the grounds with “Health and Safety Reminders”. Additional signage has been installed at entertainment venues and at store entrances. Members of the press are currently getting a preview of all the new protocols, from parking garage temperature screenings to the new hand washing stations set up throughout the shopping and dining complex. This next series of photos comes courtesy of Spectrum News:

As you arrive at the parking garage, hand sanitizer stations are available throughout.

Temperature screenings are provided by AdventHealth (at least for this media preview), as a medical professional will be taking your temperature upon entry. (This is a marked difference from CityWalk at Universal Orlando, where Security hosts take temperatures instead.) If you or any member of your party has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, the entire party will be denied entry. Face masks will also be required for all guests over the age of 3.

Throughout the grounds, lids have been modified on garbage bins so you can drop in any trash contact-free.

Hand washing stations will be available throughout the grounds as well.

I think ultimately the temperature checks are useless if you stop to factor in that 2/3 of COVID-19 patients presented with no fever according to Physician’s Weekly. Also there are a multitude of non-contagious conditions that can cause fever one example being migraine headaches. So it’s likely guests with no fever that are COVID-19 positive will be admitted while people with non-contagious conditions and fever will be turned away. I fail to see how this measure protects anyone at the end of the day.

The temperature checks are just one spoke in the guideline wheel. It’s coupled with social distancing, masks, and temperature checks. If you even have one person denied entry due to a fever that has the virus, that will inevitably prevent them from giving it to multiple others. I’m pretty sure if one of your family members could possibly be infected, you would have a different take on temperature checks. It’s not just a USA guideline, but used worldwide.

Migraine causing fever is exceptionally rare. That shouldn’t even be a consideration. Temperature checks are not at all useless. Most fevers are caused by contagious disease, COVID-19 or not, or infection. A person with one of those conditions will be more susceptible to contracting COVID-19, which means they will be more likely to spread it to others as well. It’s not just about that particular day in that particular environment. If Person A walks into Disney Springs with the flu and passes it to someone else, both are more vulnerable. If Person B walks in with an infection that is… Read more »

Which is why they also require people to wear masks.

There is no means of protection that is 100% effective, aside from staying totally closed. This is why they also have signs telling you that, by visiting, you assume the risk of exposure. The safety measures and guidelines might help limit exposure, but they don’t guarantee protection any more than speed limit signs guarantee protection against car crashes.

It’s also pretty easy to get around this by taking a fever reducer (tylenol, advil, etc) an hour before arrival. Like security theater, this is health safety theater. Even Iger admitted in his interview recently that Disney needs to make people “feel” like it is safe to return.

I agree. Putting on a bandaid if you need stitches works sometimes too. What’s the point? Disney is willing to take the risk. It has to be for the money.
