Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

Yeah, hand washing is always important, I don't see why that not being the primary driver of COVID transmission should be a reason to stop. Not to mention, yes in seldom cases, you could catch COVID by having droplets on your hands or picked from a surface, then touching eyes/nose/mouth without hand washing or hand sanitizer.

I've taken to wearing a sink around my body (strapped around my waist and neck) that has running hot water and a soap dispenser so I can just be in a constant state of washing my hands as I walk around.

"Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) to include adolescents 12 through 15 years of age. The FDA amended the EUA originally issued on Dec. 11, 2020 for administration in individuals 16 years of age and older.

“The FDA’s expansion of the emergency use authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to include adolescents 12 through 15 years of age is a significant step in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock, M.D. “Today’s action allows for a younger population to be protected from COVID-19, bringing us closer to returning to a sense of normalcy and to ending the pandemic. Parents and guardians can rest assured that the agency undertook a rigorous and thorough review of all available data, as we have with all of our COVID-19 vaccine emergency use authorizations.”"

I can see Disney loosening the mask rules at resorts soon. Outdoors of course

Parks will stay the same for a while I think. But say walking outdoors around the resorts and heading to the pools etc .... I can see them get rid of masks in those situations.
I was at SSR last week. At the very most, people walking outside would wear a mask on their chin and pull it up if they saw someone coming toward them. On several occasions an oncoming person would signal it wasn’t necessary and people would just pass each other. Masks were being worn inside the buildings.

Here's another story on the approval for 12-15 year olds:
Just to clarify, the CDC still has to sign off on it, which they are expected to do in a couple of days. So by the end of this week, it should be ready to roll for that age group.

At this point it’s not necessary to wear masks outdoors anywhere. I suspect this will go soon at Disney. Masks indoors will likely continue for awhile longer but the social distancing should be 3ft everywhere now indoors but not policed because 3ft is basically ridiculous anyways

Just had a little IM convo with my coworker who had covid back in January. Doesn't seem at all like she's even bothered to research the benefits of getting the vaccine and not just relying on covid immunity. Lack of knowledge/understanding is real.

They may not all be hillbillies. As for morons...... ;)
Not jumping at the chance to take a shot (not vaccine) that was rushed and still being studied makes someone a moron? Why doesnt the Red Cross allow vaccinated people to donate plasma?

It's a shot (not vaccine) that uses Lipid nanoparticles to essentially sneak past your immune system that would otherwise destroy it.

But the people who rush to the nearest vaccination site and get their shot then immediately brag about it on social media and to ANYBODY they cross paths with are not morons? Well, they're actually morons. They're just poor, misguided, gullable souls. Enjoy your serfdom.

Go back and read the thread. What the vaccine actually does and how it works has been clearly explained by those who work in the field.

So what’s everyone’s new excuse gonna be once it’s approved by the FDA? After what amount of time is it not considered “rushed?”

Ability to parrot what you see/hear is real. Like, totally, please take me seriously because Pfizer hasn't been like totally sued for billions and billions of dollars for like totally lying in the past but they are like totally legally exempt from it with this totally tubular jab. Totally, like for real.
