Probably should have considered booking at DLR instead of WDW. Looks like CA may have possibly peaked and is heading down. Too soon to call it yet. Maybe those little pieces of cloth people wear over their mouth actually work 🤔🤔🤔

Plus the California parks have way more outdoor waiting areas, outdoor dining options, etc. and you can walk from most of the hotels so no bus / transit.

I would be much more comfortable visiting Disneyland right now... which gives me an idea! :)

For those that have animals or are concerned about animal being vectors for covid, Zoetis ( Pfizer used to be a majority stockholder) has PCR test for animals as well as vaccines.




Hmm I wonder if Disney Animal Park has looked into great ape vaccination, a place in Georgia just vaccinated it’s great apes, and many months ago San Diego zoo Great Apes got vaccinated.

Interested in getting the Regenron cocktail? At Orlando's Camping World Stadium they are seeing 320 people per day 7 days a week, appt only. DeSantis of FL is encouraging people to take it. More Regeneron cocktail clinics are expected to open all over Florida according to media.
To be clear, the monoclonal antibody cocktail has legitimate use. But I find it very odd that Florida's governor is expending so much political capital on a EAU treatment that is very expensive, has a trial of only about 800 participants supporting its use, has a fairly narrowly defined clinically authorization, whose main benefit in that limited trial showed about a 6% reduction in hospitalization rates vs. placebo, must be given over a period of 1-2 hours under supervision by skilled nurses, and has no effect whatsoever on reducing transmission. As opposed to some other tools that are very cheap and easy to implement that he has banned others from mandating.

Btw, if you look at the terms of the EAU, Regeneron's cocktail was given to a certain well-known individual outside of its authorized use.

On the vaccination front we’ve crossed the threshold of 70% of eligible people with at least 1 shot. Far from done, but it’s good to see the number still getting higher. From a PR prospective it’s becoming easier and easier for politicians and business leaders to favor requiring something that over 70% of people have already chosen to do. Not long now until we hit that tipping point. Full FDA approval should help too.

As we know, the Delta variant wave will getting downward quicker soon by October as kids under 5-11 will getting vaccinated.

I googled and found nothing. Quite a few zoos seem to have done it (mine included). For a while now, our zoo even had extra barriers up to keep people further from some animals even outdoors due to covid. Cool they are trying to take care of the animals there.

"After not reporting COVID-19 case and death numbers on Sunday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that Florida had 56,036 more people infected and 528 people added to the death toll.

Those numbers were reported Monday evening. Additional details were not immediately released.

On Aug. 10, the CDC changed the way it reported cases and deaths in Florida. The agency now reports Florida’s cases and deaths based on the date of occurrence instead of the date that it was reported to the agency. The Herald is still presenting daily totals as the difference between cumulative total of new cases from one day to the next.

Current hospitalizations in Florida moved back a smidge after 14 consecutive days of climbing to record highs, according to Monday’s report from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Florida had 23 fewer COVID-19 patients, leaving it at 15,962. That still represented 28.2% of all hospital patients in the state, a metric that continues an upward march.

As for how that compares to the nation, COVID patients make up only 10.9% of hospital patients in the United States. Florida, with only 6.5% of the population, accounts for 19.1% of the current COVID hospitalizations.

Of the hospitalized, 3,340 people were in intensive care unit beds, a tiny increase of four. That represents 51.5% of the state’s ICU hospital beds from 251 hospitals reporting data. Nationally, 24.9% of the ICU patients are being treated for COVID-19 and Florida has 16.7% of the U.S.’s COVID patients in ICUs."

"As of the CDC’s Sunday report, 10,842,793 Floridians have completed the two-dose series of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, or have completed Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine. That means about 50.5% of Florida’s total population is fully vaccinated, 27th among U.S. states and territories."

We have good friends who just got back. They were very impressed with the overall way Disney handled everything Covid related.
By the way as the movies will still be releasing by November-December are:
Sing 2
Spider Man No Way Home
Addams Family 2
Ron's Gone Wrong
Encanto
Top Gun Maverick

As the kids will be vaccianted by Thanksgiving and Christmas. So there will be no more huge surges / spikes anymore. @GoofGoof

This again :(

There is only one reasonable fix MANDATE vaccination and do it yesterday, Sorry peeps but the crazy conspiracy stories are pure crap and no excuse for not getting vaccinated. Being in the 'critical infrastructure' business got mine in March

I like accurate numbers though because it tells us if buildings with UV lights in the HVAC system have fewer cases, or what size the air filtration systems needs to be to reduce infections. inflating numbers to scare people does none of this.

So you say immediately after peddling a crazy conspiracy story.

Ah no, Hospital administrators were/are pressuring pathologists to list COVID-19 as the CoD to collect the goverment bonus,

It's no different from the coding systems which break down a diagnosis into the most profitable ICD-10 codes as two medically identical procedures can be coded and one will return several times the amount if 'correctly' coded.
