Theme parks in the U.S. have increased the number of hand sanitizer dispensers in their parks for guests and are educating employees on the importance of good hygiene practices to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

In a statement, Universal said it is in close contact with health officials and experts and continues to monitor the situation.

“We are communicating with our team members and reinforcing our best-practice health and hygiene procedures,” Universal said. “We are also educating them on basic preventative measures. In addition, we are reviewing and enhancing our already aggressive cleaning protocols.”

Universal is also increasing the number of hand sanitizer units in its parks.

Similarly, Disney told People that it continues to monitor the situation. Disney has “stringent sanitation procedures” in place and is educating employees on preventative measures. 

Disney, too, has increased the number of hand sanitizer units in its parks. On Wednesday, they could be seen at the entrances to multiple quick-service dining locations. 

While the states where Universal and Disney have a presence, Florida and California, do have reported cases of Covid-19, none had been linked with transmission in the parks as of Thursday.
