Workers and their spouses told The Daily Beast that Disney is allowing people who tested positive for the novel coronavirus to return to work despite the dangers and risks it represents.
- “Workers and their worried spouses reveal to The Daily Beast that Disney is not only underreporting its COVID cases but clearing COVID-positive employees to return to work.”
- One cast member, named in the article as Alicia, said: “Unknowingly, (the cast members were) working next to an employee who was exposed to COVID-19,” she wrote. “Although the Union urged him to not return, he still worked his entire shift, thus exposing ALL of (them).”
The report also said there’s a lack of employees encouraging people to follow the COVID-19 guidelines, like social distancing.
- “Regardless of the new safety rules, so long as the customer is wearing a mask, [cast members] are discouraged from ‘ruffling feathers,’ meaning social distancing enforcement has become fairly scattershot at best.”
