The Shipwreck Island waterpark in Panama City Beach, Florida, has taken a series of precautionary measures in an attempt to protect its staff and prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The control measures include the sending home of employees. However, in a statement the park’s management said, employees at the waterpark would be able to return to the attraction site during the next couple of weeks to work on essential tasks.
Shipwreck Island also announced its lifeguard classes have been cancelled and that season pass holders will not be allowed to arrive at the waterpark to take photos for the passes they had ordered online.
The waterpark is due to reopen on April 18, 2020. Though the park’s management said such precautionary measures may delay the opening date for the new season.
