Ragodon was stranded on the Disney Wonder after it docked in San Diego to offload its last passengers on May 19th. Several Cast Members of the Disney Wonder, along with passengers on board, were tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized. Ragodon continued to work on the Disney Wonder as part of the essential crew.
