Orange County is beginning to see more activity with the reopening of theme parks and with the soon reopening of Walt Disney World Resorts. A new order will be going into effect for all of those living in and vacationing in Orange County Florida. Read about this new, mandatory protocol here.
Walt Disney World Protocols
We shared with you earlier today of the updated safety protocols for Walt Disney World as shared on Good Morning America by Disney’s Chief Medical Officer. They shared that they will encourage social distancing and safety protocols with the help of The Incredibles.
Walt Disney World continues to reassure us that they will be practicing safety and health protocols to help keep all Cast Members and Guests safe as they enjoy “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”
Orange County Mandate
Across the state of Florida, they have seen a rise in coronavirus cases. Today, the Florida Department Health reported over 3,000 new cases and 43 new deaths due to COVID-19.
In response to this and with the rise of tourism, Mayor Jerry Demings, of Orange County, has announced that face masks will be mandatory in all public places. This will apply to Orange County and the city of Orlando. Mayor Demings issued and signed this Executive Order to go into effect Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 12:01 am until further notice.
Under this Executive Order, “every person working, living, visiting or doing business in Orange County will be required to wear face coverings consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines in any public space.” Mayor Demings shares that this is in the best interest of all businesses, “We do not want to experience another shutdown within our community.”
To Disney and Beyond
As we have shared face coverings have already been required at Disney Springs and they have been announced as necessary for all Disney Park Guests. If you will be traveling to Walt Disney World, be sure to follow the county mandate of face coverings when you leave the Disney property as well.
We have heard reports that Disney Springs now has Disney face coverings in stock with a limit of 4 masks per person (while supplies last).
