While Disney is taking multiple measures to ensure both Cast Member and guest safety, there are new protocols in place in case an employee does become sick.

According to Orlando Sentinel, Service Trades Council Union, which represents approximately 43,000 Disney World employees, announced that Disney will provide paid sick time for Cast Members to stay at home if they become sick.

The union also announced that if Cast Members do call in sick after showing virus symptoms, it will not violate their attendance policy. Currently, the known health measures in place to keep Cast Members and Guests safe include the requirement of face masks, plexiglass shields at all registers, frequent sanitation, and reduced touch points between Cast Members and Guests, among others.

  1. We have reservations for September and October. IF WDW is open, mandatory face coverings for guests=cancelled reservations for me. That would be miserable in the FL heat. No thank you!
