“Outbreaks of the new variants — including a highly contagious one first identified in the United Kingdom, as well as others from South Africa and Brazil that scientists worry can evade existing vaccines — have lent urgency to a review of potential travel restrictions within the United States”, one federal official said.

While COVID-19 cases in Florida have declined in recent weeks, the U.K. variant has spread rapidly in the state during that time. It now accounts for up to 15% of new cases in Florida, according to estimates from a team of researchers modeling the variant’s growth across the country — up from about 1% at the beginning of January.

No decisions have been made yet, but there is talk going on around the clock on how to mitigate the situation. This will obviously have a huge impact on the Walt Disney Company, and avid Disney lovers.

But, for now, Mickey is still waiting for anyone that wants to stop in.
