Mandatory Two-Week Quarantine Remains In Affect for all Traveling to Florida from New York Tri-State Area until July 7th

While many have been delighted by the initial announcements that Walt Disney World would be reopening on June 22nd for resorts and July 11th for its theme parks- the Florida Department of Health may jeopardize plans for many US travelers.

In a recent update, Governor DeSantis announced that all individuals entering the state of Florida from Connecticut, New Jersey and New York must isolate or quarantine themselves for a period of 14 days. This order, originally set to end on May 8th, has been extended through July 7th. Quarantine should be in effect from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter -potentially destroying any visit of less than two weeks.

Roadside checkpoints will be set up to screen for potential COVID-19 cases. Students traveling for the purpose of academic work, internships, sports training and any other activity or program approved by their institution will be exempt.

If you live in the Tri-State Area and have been planning a trip to Walt Disney World within the coming month, we encourage you to check with your travel operator for advice, and ensure you are following local guidelines.
