As news begins to circulate about the potential for a "vaccine passport" to be developed (which would allow those who have completed their COVID-19 immunization to have an easy way to show their vaccination status in order to travel, attend sporting events, etc. that require vaccination to attend), Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has weighed in on this possibility and has said definitively that State of Florida will not support vaccine passports. At a press conference, DeSantis confirmed that he will be taking executive action to ban vaccine passports in the state later this week.
Some have wondered if major theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld and others would require some kind of proof of vaccination as they increase capacity limits and (potentially) end mandatory mask wearing, but Governor DeSantis has said unequivocally that it would be inappropriate for theme parks in the state to require proof of vaccination. You can check out video of his comments in the video below:
With vaccines for COVID-19 rolling out across the US, many are hoping to see additional loosening of restrictions at places like theme parks, but health experts are warning that until most of the population is widely vaccinated, distancing efforts should continue, which means that even though tweaks and changes may happen in the coming weeks, guests shouldn't expect mandatory masks and limited capacity to go away entirely any time soon.
What do you think about the use of vaccine passports at theme parks? Would you support the use of these documents if it meant Disney could get rid of mandatory masks, capacity caps, and bring back entertainment?
