Florida Governor Commends Universal Orlando on Virus Guidelines, States Similar Business Practices Will Keep Things Open
As new cases of COVID-19 approach 10,000, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stated today that the state can keep businesses open while also controlling the spread of the virus. If guidelines are followed, like wearing masks, Gov. DeSantis and experts on the matter say the virus can be contained despite ballooning cases in Florida and other states where businesses have reopened.
DeSantis cited Universal Orlando as an example of guidelines being followed which allow for the theme park to be open during such an unprecedented time. Statements like this give rise to hope that Walt Disney World theme parks will reopen on time in mid-July despite Disneyland delaying their July 17th reopening.
Universal Orlando has enacted strict social distancing procedures to keep guests safe while visiting the resort which opened on June 5th. Amongst the changes made to the resort are the addition of virtual queues to attractions, the requirement of face coverings, and temperature screenings to enter the resort.
