Much of Walt Disney World Resort is located in Orange County, with a smaller portion of the resort in Osceola County. Good news is being reported for Orange County as officials have announced COVID-19 is hitting a “good” plateau in the area.


As shared by the OrlandoSentinel: Coronavirus infections have plateaued in Orange County at a level that the state’s top health official here called manageable and a sign that locals are “learning to live” with the virus.

“You can plateau at any level — it means [infections] are stable — but this is a good one,” Dr. Raul Pino said Monday (Sept. 21). “If we were to stay at this level, that would be perfect. If we could go lower, even better.” Positivity rates have held steady under 6% for 14 days and the rolling average for the past two weeks is under 5%.

Mayor Jerry Demings noted the teams he created to inspect businesses visited Orlando breweries over the weekend and found all adhering to safety guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to control the virus which causes COVID-19. Inspectors also visited Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom in recent days and have now visited all of the county’s theme parks and attractions. All earned letters of compliance, Demings said.
