Florida continues to see COVID-19 surge with a record high day yesterday of more than 5500 new cases

Jun 24, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The state of Florida now has 109,000 cases to date of COVID-19, and yesterday saw a record day adding 5500 new cases to the total.

Yesterday's increase was more than 850 higher than the previous record from last week. The state as a whole, and Orange County, is seeing a far higher number of cases than was seen when the state shutdown in March.

Last week, in response to the rise in cases, Orange County introduced a mandatory mask rule to try to manage the spread of COVID-19.

Walt Disney World opened its resort hotels this week, and plans to begin a phased reopening of the theme parks from July 11. The NBA and MLS will also resume their seasons at Walt Disney World in July.
