Mayor Demings replied, if the county exceeds hospital capacity and if any outbreaks are associated with Disney, the county “won’t hesitate to ask Disney to reevaluate the reopening.” You can listen to the full press conference above. The question asked happens towards the very end. Hong Kong Disneyland announced yesterday that it would be reclosing on July 15th. So far there seems to be no plan to reclose the Florida parks.
