Orange County, Florida Mayor Jerry Demmings commented yesterday on the county’s mask mandate. The mayor says the mandate will likely remain in place until 50% of the population is vaccinated. He thinks that will be around July of this year.
The mandate was introduced last year and declares that every person in Orange County must wear a face covering, and businesses can deny entry to non-compliant customers.
Much of the Walt Disney World Resort is located in Orange County. Guests visiting the theme parks are required to wear face coverings while on Disney property. Disney is also very strictly enforcing their mask rule. Even if the county ends the mask mandate, individual companies, like Disney World, can still set their own face mask rules.
