As the number of coronavirus cases spike in Florida, many Disney World workers are worried about the park reopening July 11.
More than 7,000 people who work at Disney World are worried about the parks grand reopening, they have signed an online petition saying “this virus is not gone, unfortunately, it’s only become worse in this state.”
Disney is putting several measures in place to reopen safely, but staffers who signed the petition are hoping they’ll reconsider, saying it’s not fair to ask the people who work there to risk their lives.
About 10% of Disney’s workforce have signed this particular petition, and there’s a similar petition by Disneyland workers in California which has nearly 50,000 signatures.
Disney plans to reopen all 12 of its theme parks around the world by mid-July.
