COVID-19 Florida Opening Models Gets Pushed Back Again
The projections first suggested a possible reopening on June 1st, then it got moved to June 11th, and now its suggesting June 21st for Florida reopening.
On 18th April, we shared that healthdata.org (who creates models based on official COVID-19 data) suggested that some restrictions in Florida could start to lifted on June 1st. Just 4 days later, they updated their models to extend that date to June 11th.
Now, as of April 27th, they've made an update once again to suggest relaxing of restrictions can't happen until June 21st.
After June 21, 2020, relaxing social distancing may be possible with containment strategies that include testing, contact tracing, isolation, and limiting gathering size.
Even though Walt Disney World appears to be gearing towards a June 1st opening (they're taking resort and restaurant reservations ), in the next couple weeks ahead, I wouldn't be surprised to see recommendations pushed into July.
Keep in mind, whenever Walt Disney World opens, it's still not yet known if travel bans will be lifted for us to travel there.
Walt Disney World is currently closed until further notice. No official reopening date has been announced.
