Handful of Guests on Disney Wonder Sailing That Recently Docked in San Diego Tested Positive for COVID-19
According to reports coming in from several California news sources, the Disney Wonder which docked in San Diego on March 19th has had a handful of passengers and 2 crew members test positive for the COVID-19 virus.
A recent report in the Union Journal says that Disney stated on Monday that they have alerted all visitors and crew members of the COVID-19 situation.
As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, The Disney Wonder drew into the Port of San Diego after a Panama Canal Cruise that departed from New Orleans on March 6th. The cruise was originally slated to make a number of stops including Mexico, Cayman Islands and Colombia but decided skipped numerous stops over heightened coronavirus concerns.
When the ship originally docked, none of the 1.980 passengers were symptomatic. However, that began to change on Sunday when both a passenger and crew member had tested positive. By Monday the news came out that numerous travellers and 2 crewmembers tested positive for COVID-19
Before departing the ship in San Diego, passengers were given wellness tests and were advised to self-quarantine for 14 days amid mounting concerns.
There are still crewmembers aboard the Disney Wonder with the ship still anchored at the cruise terminal where it will stay until April 19th.
The Port of San Deigo has advised over the past week that they will be completely disinfecting the area prior to and after each ship disembarks. However, on March 30th, the county authorities issued an order stating that cruise ships bearing passengers WILL NOT be able to disembark at the port after March 31st. Some ships may still be visible at the port to refuel or obtain supplies.
