The Florida county where Disney World is located says it doesn't plan to revisit the park's reopening plan, despite pushback from some Disney employees.
"Orange County continues to monitor the health data for the county with the rise in cases," Kelly Finkelstein, senior public information officer for Orange County government, told CNN. "At this time there are no plans to revisit the reopening plans. That decision rests with Disney officials and the governor."
More than 7,000 people are petitioning both Disney and government officials to delay reopening Disney World next month as coronavirus cases surge in Florida.
The Disney theme park plans to begin a phased reopening on July 11 for its Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks and July 15 for EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. Florida reported an additional 3,286 cases of coronavirus on Tuesday, bringing the state total to 103,503.
