ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - How about some hand sanitizer before
greeting Mickey Mouse?
In an effort to halt the spread of the swine flu, Walt Disney World has installed dozens of hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the theme park, hotel lobbies and character meet-and-greet areas.
Disney is also reminding visitors of basic health safety tips,
like covering their mouths while sneezing and washing hands
regularly, on fliers that list park hours and show times.
In all, more than 60 bulk hand sanitizer dispensers have been
added at Disney World and Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.
The health precautions are the most visible steps taken by any
of Orlando's major theme parks since the swine flu outbreak last spring.
