Authorities in St. Thomas Tell the Mouse to Stay Away
Disney Fantasy denied entry with less than 1% cases onboard.
You can add the Disney Fantasy to the growing list of panicked health officials in the Caribbean Islands. On December 30, the Fantasy was refused permission to dock in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Disney officials released the following statement:
“The Disney Fantasy did not call on St. Thomas today due to both an increase in COVID-19 cases on the island and a small number of fully vaccinated Crew Members and Guests – less than 1% of those on board – in isolation for COVID-19.”
“Those affected by these breakthrough cases are either asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, and we are following CDC protocols for managing cases on board. We continue to operate with multiple layers of health and safety protocols in place, such as requiring vaccinations, PCR tests at the port prior to embarkation for all guests, testing of our crew multiple times per week, enhanced cleaning protocols and a requirement that masks be worn in all indoor spaces.”
St. Thomas currently has 544 Covid patients and a 11.6% positivity rate.
