Holiday World addresses alleged positive COVID-19 cases


SANTA CLAUS, Ind. (WEHT) — Holiday World officials tell Eyewitness News they are aware of a Facebook post that allegedly claims multiple people in an Evansville family visited the park and have since tested positive for COVID-19.

The post claims the guests were not wearing masks and touched multiple surfaces during their visit.

At this time, Holiday World officials say they have not yet been contacted through contact tracing regarding the alleged positive cases. Officials say they are closely following safety protocols and guidelines outlined by the local health department, the Governor’s office and the CDC.

Officials say 250 extra employees were hired in light of the pandemic, specifically to help deep clean surfaces before the park opens, multiple times during open hours and again after the park closes.

At this time, officials say the claim is not currently effecting their regular open days and maintaining guest safety remains their top priority.
