That’s it folks, this meeting was as uneventful as it gets. The next meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday. We’ll be looking to Governor DeSantis and his task force that clearly has more pull.  We’ll bring you updates as soon as we get them.  We’ll be writing a series of Coronavirus related posts to inform you on all things Disney and this pandemic.  Stay safe and thanks for tuning in to Da Mouse LIVE!

Chuck Whittall expresses the sense of danger small and medium sized businesses are in as they stare into the unknown of when they might reopen.  The format of this meeting has so far been disappointing. It seems the general sense of this meeting, is punting until the State Government in Florida makes their guidelines known later this week. Still no comments from Disney or Universal at this point.

Still getting a medical overview from Advent Health and now Orlando Health.  They are talking about the obvious new normal that we all will be living under until treatments for COVID-19 come to market and hopefully a vaccine in record time.

The guidelines from the Federal Government are recommending that large venues don’t resume some form of normal operations for another six weeks. This lines up well with a June timeline for Walt Disney World.  What form that will take, it’s difficult to know.  Shanghai Disneyland has now been closed 3 months. They only recently opened their shopping district and hotels in a very limited capacity.

A question was asked about the Herd Immunity potential for COVID-19.  The response is that it is extremely unlikely at this point and perhaps ever.  The estimates on the penetration rate of the virus are somewhere between 1-3% of the community.  For herd immunity you’d need 60% or more of the population to have contracted and lived through the virus.  Basically it’s fools gold at this point according to medical professionals.

Advent Health is looking to ramp up antibody testing in the coming weeks. They see a plateau and not a typical peak in the bell curve in their data.

The IHME model is being used by the Federal Government and other State and local officials to determine the extent of the virus within communities across the globe. If you look closely at the image we posted you’ll see IHME is recommending a new containment strategy posture after June 11th. Though just informed speculation at this point, Monday June 15th seems like a reasonable date for some businesses and even perhaps theme parks in Central Florida to be targeting internally for their reopening.

Hello and good morning from Orlando, Florida. Today’s meeting of Orlando business leaders should be quite interesting.  We should begin to see their visions and plans take shape for a reopening of Orange County. Of course we’ll be looking for any morsel of information as to when Disney Parks will reopen and what that phased reopening will look like. These are difficult times and I sincerely hope and pray for the safety of you and your families.  My deepest condolences for everyone affected by COVID-19 in any way.
