Disney World has announced on their website that they will be removing temperature check requirements for cast members and guests.
The announcement comes quietly and in the form of a change on their website.
Disney has had temperature screenings in place since they reopened in July 2020.
Disney lists and details their extensive COVID-19 protocols and as of today, the temperature screening segment has been changed to read:
Since reopening, we have considered guidance from public health authorities, government agencies, and our own team of health and safety experts as we assess and update health and safety measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.Disney
As this guidance continues to evolve, and with the support of local health and government officials, we are making some additional adjustments. Following the advice of the CDC and our local health officials, we will phase out onsite temperature screenings at Walt Disney World Resort for Cast Members beginning May 8 and Guests on May 16.
We will continue to follow the guidance of health and safety leaders going forward and most importantly encourage people to get vaccinated.
