Walt Disney Co’s (NYSE:DIS) Disney World in Orlando, Fla., will be offering free mosquito repellent to visitors to help combat Zika virus.
Disney World, Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports will all be offering free mosquito repellent to visitors. This will include pump bottles and towelettes. Visitors will also get a free aerosol can of mosquito repellent in their hotel rooms to help ward of Zika-carrying mosquitoes.
It isn’t just Disney World and the other Disney parks that have concerns about Zika spreading. SeaWorld Entertainment Inc (NYSE:SEAS) and Universal Orlando are also going to be offering free mosquito repellent to help keep the virus from spreading.
The efforts made by SeaWorld will include its three Orlando locations, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island in Tampa. Universal is also working to prevent mosquito breeding by removing areas where standing water is present, reports Orlando Sentinel.
While all of the theme parks in Florida are obviously working to ease customer’s concerns about Zika virus, none of them are willing to name it. A report from Gizmodo claims that none of the pamphlets or signs in the parks include the word “Zika.”
Despite Disney World and the other theme parks’ efforts to avoid the word, Zika virus is still something to be careful about. There are a few things things that those in the United States need to know about the virus. It’s also important to be able to identify the symptoms that are connected to the illness. This is doubly true for pregnant women.
