The Orange County Economic Task Force offered some preliminary guideline suggestions for Disney World and Universal Orlando theme parks as the state considers a phased approach to reopening the parks, according to Deadline.

Larger theme parks are recommended to operate at 50% capacity during a Phase 1 period. That could increase to 75% capacity in Phase 2. However, there is not a set date for either of the phases as pandemic conditions remain hard to predict.

Additionally, all employees will be required to wear facemasks; there will be touchless hand sanitizer at each ticketing entry and turnstile, and at each ride/attraction entry and exit; there will be temperature checks for staff prior to their shifts; as well as a regular wipe-down of all railing and surfaces, according to Deadline. Any staff member age 65 and above will be encouraged to stay home.

Tape markings 6 feet apart could be placed in the attraction and ride queues.

Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to announce formal re-opening plans Wednesday, the day before Florida’s current stay-at-home order expires.
