COVID-19 cases are rising in Florida, and the CDC recently recommended that people return to wearing masks indoors in high risk spaces.
While New York City is requiring proof of vaccination for many indoor spaces, private companies have also begun adopting new vaccination policies, and today President Joe Biden shared his thoughts about these changes.
Deadline has reported that President Joe Biden thanked The Walt Disney Company as well as Netflix, Fox, Walmart, Google, and Tyson Foods for their updated employee vaccination policies requiring that employees be vaccinated. Disney recently announced that Cast Members must be fully vaccinated in order to work at Disney.
President Biden expressed hope that vaccination rates are growing, but remarked that the current rise of COVID-19 cases is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Biden called COVID cases a “preventable tragedy” and praised the major corporations that have instituted company-wide vaccine requirements: “I will have their backs.”
Disney World recently updated their mask policy and we will be keeping a close eye on any other changes that may occur. Stick with AllEars for updates related to COVID-19 that could impact your next visit to Disney World and beyond.
