Orange County, Florida Businesses No Longer Need Temperature Checks, Deemed “Waste of Resources”

Orange County Department of Health official Dr. Raul Pino has stated that temperature checks are not necessary, Lauren Seabrook with WFTV reports.

The Department of Health is not recommending temperature checks as they waste resources on something that doesn’t necessarily prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Temperature checks have been required to enter Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, and many other businesses in the county in the past year. However, someone carrying COVID-19 will not always have a fever, and those who are found to have a fever will not always have COVID-19 (they might just be hot from the Florida sun).

This week, Orange County announced how it would phase out physical distancing and mask mandates. It began with the immediate change from six feet to three feet physical distancing and further changes will depend on vaccination rates.

As of now, both Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort still require temperature checks and six feet of physical distancing. Keep checking WDWNT for updates.

“As of now, Walt Disney World will continue to needlessly inconvenience guests and carry on with safety theater even though ‘the experts’ no longer recommend it or state that it is effective”

Gee, what a warm and welcome way to treat a Guest. And, yes, Disney needs every dollar they can get in order to pay YOUR salary. Without Guests, you won’t have a job to go to.

Of course they dont matter. Those of us with half a brain have been saying this over a year. They already saying distancing doesnt matter either And I’m sure in another 6months or year they will say masks dont help either. Fear mongering is all this has been to make people reliant on government and pushing for socialism. No thanks i will keep using my own brain.

You are correct. All of this is a big conspiracy to… well… what you said. How about you use the other half of your brain to figure out what common sense is?

Bingo! Agreed! This bogus cast member is one to ignore. He hates you and the fact that you want to think for yourself. Wonder if Disney knows it has workers who hate the customers.

I will just say this as a human being Covid or not I don’t want people standing right on top of me or coughing and sneezing in my direction has nothing to do with the government. Has more to do with my right to have personal space.

Even Fauci said that temperature checks weren’t a reliable indicator of infection — at least for COVID.

All places need to drop them.

It took almost a year for a county government to realize temp checks are a waste resources on something that doesn’t necessarily prevent the spread???
