Orange County (FL) Mayor Lifts Outdoor Mask Mandate for Everyone

In a public briefing Friday afternoon, Orange County Florida Mayor, Jerry Demings announced the lifting of the mask mandate while outdoors for all people regardless of vaccination status. This comes after 50% of Orange County residents, ages 16 and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine according to the Florida Department of Health in Orange County. Demings reminded the public that they still needed to remain prudent in taking precautions for preventing COVID and that social distancing of three feet is still a guideline.

There is no word yet if or how this could affect Disney theme parks and resorts. During the second-quarter earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek recognized the challenges of wearing a mask in the summer and hinted towards a possible more pleasant experience in the future. No changes have been made to Disney’s current policy.
