City of Orlando Asks Residents to Reduce Water Consumption in Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic; May Affect Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort
The mayor of the City of Orlando, Buddy Dyer, is asking all residents to reduce their water consumption immediately in an effort to avoid a crisis, according to Fox 35’s Dave Puglisi.
The reason for the request is because liquid oxygen, which is used to treat water in the city, is in critical demand by hospitals to treat patients with COVID-19. Should consumption not be reduced, the situation could hit a critical point within the next week, with residents possibly being asked to boil water for safety. It’s currently unknown how, if at all, this would affect the Universal Orlando Resort, which is within the city, or if this could possibly extend to nearby Orange County, home to Walt Disney World, which is currently unaffected.
