Orange County, Florida is no longer requiring vaccinated individuals to wear face masks while indoors. Florida now falls under the CDC’s “moderate” tier for Covid-19 community transmission.
The current CDC guidelines state:
“Unvaccinated people in Orange County, Florida should wear a mask in public, indoor settings. Mask requirements might vary from place to place. Make sure you follow local laws, rules, regulations or guidance. Everyone in Osceola County, Florida should wear a mask in public, indoor settings. Mask requirements might vary from place to place. Make sure you follow local laws, rules, regulations or guidance.”
This change puts Walt Disney World in an odd situation. Most of the Walt Disney World Resort is located in Orange County, Florida, however, some of the resort is in Osceola County, which currently falls under the CDC’s “substantial” tier.
As of right now, all guests visiting Walt Disney World are required to wear face masks while indoors and on all Disney transportation. Cast Members who have been vaccinated are allowed to go mask-free while backstage. Universal Orlando, located in Orange County, recommends guests wear face masks while indoors but does not require it.
Stay tuned for more updates regarding Walt Disney World and the company’s mask policies.
