Deaths are down 90% from the peak and falling. There’s your good news.
Sheesh. He said he was looking for good news. 🙄
That ain’t it.

Intelligent public policy to contain would be the good news. I have “high standards”

Everyone has a choice. They can return to work or stay home. Because a few don’t want to go back to work the choice shouldn’t be taken from the ones that do.
Yes, everyone has a choice, but Disney has an obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees. It’s a valid debate whether the current increase in cases makes it unsafe or not. I’m not saying it is or isn’t, but it’s not as simple as saying people have a choice to either take a risk or stay home. They should be able to work and be safe, not have to choose one or the other.

this standard you speak of is not applied evenly across all industries. Anyways, the state already approved the opening, which included the safety precautions. So if that doesn’t change and Disney doesn’t change their stance, it is a simple choice. Either work or don’t.

Doesn’t mean they made the right decision...

I’m with GoofyG on this one...I’m not of an opinion on what should be done as far as opening/push...but serious, expert opinions should be heard and policy formulated based on that right now...
Not politics or economics in a vacuum.

Let’s face it the state would have approved a blank piece of paper if they presented it. TWDC isn’t worried about what the state wants. I’m not even saying Disney’s plan was bad. It was actually pretty comprehensive and as long as they follow through should provide a pretty good level of protection for workers. That plan was also developed a few months ago during a time with much less active cases in FL and in the area around WDW. I guess what I’m saying is they must have some breaking point built into their internal plans. Some trigger that says the situation with the virus makes it no longer safe to be open. I don’t know what that breaking point is and I’m not saying we have hit it but it should and probably does exist.

the breaking point would likely be other open theme parks contributing significantly to spread. As far as I’m aware, nothing has shown this. If you see the roll-back recently in the state, they have been strategic about what they see as the main contributors to their recent issues. It hasn’t been places like universal. Unless that changes (or they make a decision based on PR rather than safety), they move forward.

We still need more tests. Positive rate is way too high and the lines mean people who want to get tested might not be trying at all.


It's ridiculous.

I know Desantis has said that in the Tampa area they were going to ramp up resources to do wider testing at Tropicana, and perhaps Raymond James. But sweet mercy I didn't think we would still be talking about test delays/resources in late June........
