Today the CDC announced that those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are safe to participate in outdoor activities without a face mask. However, they followed up by noting that fully vaccinated people should still wear masks in crowded public outdoor settings.
This means that the recommendations for all guests to wear face masks at theme parks are unlikely to change at this time.
Orange County Mayor Jerry Demmings said earlier this month that the local mask mandate might be lifted by late summer. It’s unclear how the CDC’s new recommendations will affect his decision. Both Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort are in Orange County and subject to the mask mandate.
