Following new CDC recommendations, Disney Parks in the U.S. have changed their safety precautions regarding masks indoors.
Starting today at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, all Cast Members in guest areas and guests that are 2 years or older must wear an approved face covering when indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
The change comes after new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were released earlier this week.
According to the official Disneyland Resort website:
Beginning July 30, face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors, including on many attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings remain optional for all Guests in outdoor common areas.
And according to the official Walt Disney World website:
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors and in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status. This includes upon entering and throughout all attractions. Face coverings remain optional for all Guests in outdoor common areas.
Universal Studios Hollywood has already brought their mask requirement back due to a local mask mandate in L.A. County initiated earlier this month.
Currently, Universal Orlando Resort is not requiring that guests wear a mask indoors, but beginning tomorrow (Saturday, July 31,) all Team Members will be required to wear a mask indoors in guest areas.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings declared a state of emergency earlier this week, and is urging Orlando residents to wear a mask indoors, but has not issued a mandate.
