It won't eradicate it either.

What is the definition of insanity? There has to be a better game plan, but I guess people refuse to follow it and not just here.

The report I saw is that the mandated closure is 10 weeks or so, open for Christmas, and then close in 1st quarter 2021 to save money during a traditionally very slow time. The first closure is French mandate. The second closure is Disney's financial planning.

But that's not it exactly if the above post is correct. Close down for less than 2 months and then reopen for Christmas and then I guess they figure they'll have to close down again after a spike so planning ahead?
