Disney World Will Give Workers Paid Time Off If They Contract COVID-19
Disney World has stated that they are giving all employees paid time off to quarantine if they were to get sick from COVID-19 when they return to work, stated by the Service Trades Council Union. They represent about 43,000 works at Walt Disney World.
Disney will supply employees with 3 masks and a thermometer if they ask.
With the announcement of Disney Springs opening back up on May 20th, Disney is taking the safety of their members as well as visitors very seriously with new precautions. This includes the following:
- All guests and employees will be required to wear masks.
- Disney will be providing employees with washable masks
- Guests will have their temperatures checked
- Plexiglass dividers have been installed at all registers.
- Guests will swipe their own payment cards.
- Custodians will be retrained to pay attention to high-touch areas.
The first wave of Disney World employees will be back at the park on Saturday to get ready for the influx of guests on the 20th. As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog a group of over 100 custodians will be the first back to ensure that the area is well maintained and following the necessary protocols.
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely here at MickeyBlog. Readers are encouraged to keep checking back for the latest Disney news and updates.
