Orange County Florida is working to reopen the economy as the light is at the end of the tunnel when it comes to the coronavirus.

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has created an economic recovery task force to make sure central Florida is doing everything right.

The Task Force is made up of nearly 50 individuals, including  Walt Disney World’s Senior Vice President of Resort & Transportation Operations Thomas Mazloum, will work to create recommendations for re-opening Orange County, including a measured and sensible approach to ease restrictions, while ensuring the safety of all.

“These are some of the best and brightest minds in our community, and the public-private Task Force will come up with recommendations to reopen Orange County using the most safe and sensible avenues possible”
