Due to COVID pandemic, temperature check via forehead scan has been implemented all over Disney World Resort property: at the entrance of Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Disney Springs. All guests must be scanned for temperature check to ensure that no one entering has a fever. This is a simple and quick process of forehead scan that would not delay the movement of any lines. In order for Disney World to continue operating responsibly during the ongoing pandemic, many rules and regulations are in place (such as wearing mask or face covering, practicing social distancing, and temperature scan) to create a safe environment for guests to enjoy. Unfortunately, last month, according to the Orlando Sentinel report (in italics, below) on February 13, 2021, one guest did not comply and ended up being arrested:
Kelly Sills had gotten past the Disney Springs medical tent without having his temperature checked on Feb. 13. A sheriff’s deputy caught up with him outside The Boathouse restaurants where Sills was yelling at a security manager and waving his arms, the report said. Sills was arrested after he refused to leave Disney Springs.
Sills, 47, of Baton Rouge, La., pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of trespass on property after being warned, according to Orange Circuit Court records.
Attorneys for Sills, Beltran and Johnson did not return messages for comment.
