Orange County Florida has seen a rise in Covid

Orange County Florida has seen a rise in Covid cases according to Mayor. Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings held a 45-minute press conference yesterday to discuss the uptick in Covid cases and what it meant for the local area. No alarm bells were going off, but it was a brief reminder that we are not completely out of the woods yet. He was joined by Dr. Raul Pino from the Florida Health Department to discuss the numbers.

What we got out of this is the number of covid cases has gone up each day this past week. Mostly in the age group of 15-34. Emergency Room visits have also gone up. Importantly, and we know people have the right to choose, Unvaccinated people, make up 95% of cases and ER visits.

The Covid restrictions were dropped by Mayor Jerry Demings when the 14-day rolling positivity rate dropped below 5%. Furthermore, Disney and Universal rolled back all the enhanced Safety measures when that number was reached. Yesterday’s numbers show the rate has now exceeded the 5% number and is at 5.99%.

It should be noted, this does NOT mean new restrictions will be imposed, nor does this mean people who are unvaccinated will get the vaccine. It is just a warning that things are not improving the past 2 weeks like they had been doing so the past few months. A small step back is all. Word came down yesterday that most cases were the new variant, but no booster shot is needed. The vaccine is holding strong against it.

We like to reiterate, Universal and Disney along with Orange county recommend you were a mask only if you have not been vaccinated. With only 55% of the population vaccinated, we do not see people wearings masks in the parks. Maybe 1 here or there.
