Today, Orange County Florida Mayor Jerry Demings announced some changes to the face covering mandate. The changes to the mask mandate will come in three phases.
The first phase is effective immediately and calls for changing social distancing from 6 feet to 3 feet in all settings. This phase also allows fully vaccinated individuals to follow the CDC’s face mask guidelines.
Phase two will start when 50% of the population age 16 and older has received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. During this phase, mask mandates for outdoors will be lifted for everyone. Mayor Demings said the county could reach phase two in the next three weeks.
Phase three will become effective when 70% of the county’s population age 16 and older has received their first dose of the vaccine OR when Orange County’s 14-day rolling positivity rate is 5% or below. In phase three all mandates will be lifted.
Disney has not made many changes to its mask policies. Guests are now allowed to remove their masks for outdoor, physically distanced photos. Other than that, Disney’s mask rules remain the same.
