Yesterday the CDC issued new guidance for fully vaccinated people, no longer requiring that they wear masks or maintain physical distance when outdoors and in most indoor locations.
Now, Disney World is commenting on how and when this may impact the parks.
According to Click Orlando, a Disney World spokesperson issued a response to the updated CDC guidance saying, “Today’s guidance from the CDC allowing fully vaccinated individuals to remove masks and the removal of physical distancing requirements is extremely positive news and as soon as is practical we will implement updated guidelines across our businesses.”
Disney CEO, Bob Chapek has also commented on the matter saying that the new guidance “is very big news for us, particularly if anybody’s been in Florida in the middle of the summer with a mask on.”
Disney World has already made a few adjustments to their face mask policy, now allowing guests to remove their face masks temporarily for photos in the parks. And, this joins other recent changes to safety measures including beginning to phase out temperature checks for both Cast Members and guests and gradually reducing physical distancing in the parks and resorts.
For now, Disney is still requiring that guests wear a face mask when they’re not stationary and actively eating or drinking, or taking a photo. We will continue to keep an eye out for updates, so stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
