Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

Most notable from the Orange Count Covid briefing earlier today:

“On Friday, (there) was 1,031 cases. On Friday, (of) those (1,031) cases, no one was vaccinated. Not a single person." Also notable they were all ages eligible for the vaccination. Sat/Sun were slightly over 99%.


The link above is the briefing If you are curious. I suspect Florida will follow the India/UK Peak in about a few days to a week then fall down from there.

So no kids.

No vaccinated people.

the chaos it has caused here is due mainly to our contact tracing app that pings close contacts of cases through Bluetooth (so if you are close to a future case even on the street for so long it will ping you) - the problem is that it has pinged so many people during this wave that our critical infrastructure is starting to fail ie cancelled trains, food shortages, shops and buisnesses closed. It’s been a nightmare and so I hope it comes and goes without such chaos in the US

My MIL was pinged and when she was done self-isolating, she had to get her car fixed and get some groceries. From doing that, she was pinged again. It's ridiculous. She was "free" for one day and had to self-isolate again.

Good news. Its burning through FL right now. I spent last week at WDW. Totally subjective on my part but heard lots more coughs and sneezes at the end of my trip than the beginning. My entire family came down with sore throat/congestion over the past 2 days, as we were leaving. Pretty mild. May or may not be Covid. I’m not going to bother with test because we are all vaccinated, 2 of us had subsequent positive tests, and all off work/school the next week anyway. Will camp out at home.

As a side, we spent 4 hours last Monday night at a Disney recommended Advent Health urgent care center right by DS. My daughter had a wrist injury and we wanted an X-ray. During that 4 hours, there were many people coming in for Covid tests. Most of them had reservations but still had to wait 3-4 hours (middle of the night at this point). Bottom line - it’s not as easy to get a covid test around there anymore.

I think there are likely TONS of undiagnosed cases. Delta will run wild in the short term, but we too will hopefully be on the downslope in a month or so.
Don't forget, all the sinusitis, URIs, etc. that we used to see each fall when kids went back to school are now happening due to easing of restrictions. It's not surprising people are getting sick more now, just not necessarily with covid. When my wife and I were down there this weekend we wore our masks in busy lines inside, and in heavy crowds outside. I actually saw more people wearing masks this past weekend then I did for our 3 week long trip back in June - mid July.

And you’re biased on this from your protestation of masks and your plans…

though I’m still trying to figure $14,000 in a paid for room?
How am I biased.

If most people who go to Disney wanted masks why is almost no one wearing one at the parks?

Nobody is stopping guests from wearing a mask yet I’m suppose to believe that what everyone wants ?

Wait…

did you not two days ago say you would “refuse and cancel” your august 11 trip if masks were required? Your words? (I may have you confused)

parlaying that to a pro-mask conspiracy is a bit of a “taint” now.

To be fair: no one wants masks…they are still unlikely…and I think if anything an indoor may be a step.

may last until the numbers go down to where they were in June. Frankly, the southern states screwed that up…but we can chew on that later

Thanks for the “lift”, Bub 🤪
