BREAKING: Disney’s Chief Medical Officer Fires Back at California Government in Official Statement Just Released
Disneyland Resort’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pamela Hymel has clapped back at Governor Newsom in response to claims earlier that reopening the resort’s theme parks is unsafe, based on science and data. Her full statement on behalf of the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products division can be found below.
There’s disagreements in terms of opening a major theme park. We’re going to let science and data make that determination. I understand the dialectic, the friction that many business leaders have that they want to move forward… but we’re going to be led by a health-first framework and we’re going to be stubborn about it.
Governor Newsom stated that California in “no hurry” to issue reopening dates or guidelines, stating science will guide any announcements on when and how it will be safe to reopen major theme parks.
