Employee at T-Rex Cafe in Disney Springs Reportedly Tests Positive for COVID-19

An employee at T-Rex Cafe in Disney Springs has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee reportedly worked at the location for 2 weeks while sick and has since been on leave. Managers at the location have been informing employees on an individual basis to make them aware of the situation.

At this time, there are no official statements from T-Rex Cafe regarding the reported COVID-19 case.

T-Rex reopened at Disney Springs on May 20 to long lines of guests. The only other Landry’s Restaurants location at Disney Springs, Rainforest Cafe, has yet to reopen at the shopping and dining complex.

Do we really need to know about everyone that tests positive for Covid?it’s bad enough we get a daily figure let alone where all the time. None one wants to catch it and it’s heartbreaking for all the families that have lost people but we need to try and live a new normal until we get that vaccine or some medication that helps.

So.. T Rex wasn’t doing temp checks, etc to insure their employees were “healthy”? Does this mean guests should be notified that a worker was working with covid? Interesting all these drastic measures and things still slip through the cracks..

“Worked for 2 weeks while sick”. Anybody that catches it from them, they should be charged with negligent manslaughter.

Not one bit surprised from a Greedy company. I have worked for them in the past and was told on many conference calls not to put specific details in Shiftnotes or any electronic formats as it could be used in a court of law. This was direct quote from Keith Beitler the COO. This company only cares about one thing $$$ they dont give a crap about there employees including there own managers. Marty Sherman

Landry’s CEO Tilman Fertitta was on CNBC. He’s going to have to take customer and staff safety seriously or people won’t show up.

It was the chef. Not a rumor. Third party vendor so not technically Disney but on Disney property. This was actually discussed on Disney cast member private fb groups. Get ready for more of the same when the parks open. Disney managers are already dropping the ball and NOT temperature checking the cast members like they are supposed to be doing. The cast members are already having to hunt down leaders who are hiding in their offices and asking why hasn’t anyone checked their temperatures at the beginning of their shifts. Some locations are following protocol. Many are not. Cast… Read more »
