Bob Iger Shares Concerns of New CDC Guidelines

Yesterday, the CDC made abrupt changes to COVID-19 testing. See Chairman Bob Iger’s concerns regarding these changes.

Health and Safety at Disney

The Walt Disney Company has been vigilant in following Health and Safety guidelines to keep both Cast Members and Guests safe. They have well placed social distancing markers and partitions when needed throughout the Disney Parks and in the Disney Park transportation system.

All Guests must have their temperature checked while entering the Disney Parks and at Disney Springs.

Face masks are also required throughout the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

Disney recently began to provide FREE COVID-19 testing for Disney Cast Members and their families.

Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, shared that when Disney Parks reopened around the world, the Walt Disney Company was encouraged that Guests readily accepted the new health and safety protocols.

First I do not agree with the new CDC guidelines nor the way they were "announced" on the CDC webpage without any explanation. However, I must point out an inaccuracy in this article.You state "They now state that individuals without COVID-19 symptoms should not be tested." That is not true. It does not say they "should not be tested" but that " testing may not be necessary" I disagree that testing may not be necessary, I think it is. Only thru testing and tracing will we ever get a handle on this. And there is nothing to prevent Disney from continuing to offer or even encourage testing. I also predict the CDC will walk back this recommendation. Too many medical groups oppose the new guidelines.

The percentage of people testing positive is extremely low compared to the number of tests being performed. That's a waste of PPE and resources. The guidelines specifically state, "A negative test does not mean you will not develop an infection from the close contact or contract an infection at a later time." It is a myth to think being tested makes someone safe from the virus. People would literally need to be tested every single day. That is not realistic.
