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.

Bob Iger Weighs In
Bob Iger, former Disney CEO and now current Disney Chairman, does not often make comments via Twitter.
However, last night he used this social media platform to share his concerns regarding this most recent CDC update.
ABC News shared, “After weeks of encouraging people to get tested if they think they have been exposed to COVID-19, the CDC abruptly changed course and said testing might not be as necessary.“
In response to this new update provided by the CDC, Bob Iger shares that “This is more than disappointing. It is horrifying.”
