Do you think that Disney world will reclose its gates due to the rising number of COVID cases in Florida and around the country?

One interesting thing is in South Florida/Miami Dade the hardest hit area, with by far the most cases in the state today, this week and all along hospital capacity has been improving. Miami/Dade, today with 62% ICU capacity available and 39% capacity of non-icu bed available and that doesn't even include the surge capacity that is available. Solidly in the green normal zone. Hope that continues to play out, that hospitals are handling the cases fine.
Right...let’s keep rolling the dice while the tables are HOT, baby!!

I just recently listened to a doctor on NPR who said the virus numbers will spike every time you close up shop and then reopen. He also said the only way to avoid it is until there is a vaccine . So I am not on board with stay at home orders until that happens for a disease that’s not an automatic death sentence.

I will be anxiously awaiting the you are an idiot that doctor is a hack and you should listen to me response.
Pretty sure what most doctors are saying is that cases will rise a bit when we open, but that if people follow physical distancing and masks, it shouldn't be a major issue.

I think it's great that Florida is reopening businesses, but the state seems to have missed the "if you follow distancing and wear masks" part of the guidance. You can't pick and choose here.

College program costs them nothing. So that tells you it’s not about savings.

They make money off them.

I’ll do it for you...oh hell yeah we are gonna see a ton of jobs eliminated and a renewed push for more streamlining and automation coming out of this.

But a company such as Disney with such huge financial concerns can’t rely on the intelligence of its customers...nor should you.
Where did I say I would rely on the intelligence of others?

Exactly. We should be able to have things safely open if everyone was smart about it. The virus didn't go away when we shut down last time and it won't go away if we do it again. We have to learn to live with it right now and be smart. Not saying it will be a cure all and of course some spread will happen regardless ...

Another problem is so many people just wanted the virus to 'go away' and live like they were. I get it. But you can't do that.

Cramped spaces with large crowds, no social distancing and no masks are the big problems.

I'd add - we the people have proved we cannot be trusted to follow the rules. It's time for government to step in and do their job and mandate masks and distancing to mitigate spread as much as possible.

If Disney were to “rely on everyone taking care of themself” - as you do - That’s the policy they’d be embracing by default.

They have rules...the jury is out on compliance and enforcement.

And those rules may not be effective.

I’m not trying to scare anyone...simply stating there is no doubt they’re weighing all these factors

I agree.

It's pretty startling how impossible it is for so many to even just keep their distance in a store. Why do people not like their own personal space??

I get in a theme park we have been conditioned for decades to 'fill in all available space' and even in a line people are afraid of 'line cutters' but we simply have to adapt to our current reality. Just do it.

I'm mixed on Disney's enforcement. The yellow shirts are all gone once the sun sets at Disney Springs and people kind of do what they want. But they can't get it wrong, they HAVE to enforce it at the parks. But ...

I will say it seems Universal has been really doing a great job. It's why I say I feel better in a theme park than my local WalMart or Publix. Not saying they 'should' be open though, but here we are. The risk exists just about everywhere. I wish we could have things safely open and EVERYONE doing the right thing but apparently we can't. I can't say it really surprises me, human behavior, but it does disappoint me.

Because they refused to set a policy to follow their own agenda for non-health reasons.

And backfiring.
Plain and simple.

All they did was announce reopening dates...that was a gutless move and void of leadership. Just my opinion that fits the historical record.

Which is crazy because if they'd just mandated masks and distancing, they would have been much more successful in accomplishing their mission.

I’m not relying on anyone else to do anything. Not sure where you are getting that from since I didn’t say it. As I said before, I’m taking precautions and not going to worry or obsess over what others do or don’t do.
