Today was a big day for the state of Florida as the Governor announced he is suspending all COVID orders as of July 1. Disney was quick to send out a push notification to Walt Disney World guests that they are currently maintaining their health and safety guidelines.
As shared by OrlandoSentinel: “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspending all local COVID-19 emergency orders by executive order on Monday (5/3), while signing a law that restricts what both governors and mayors can do during pandemics. ‘I think that’s the evidence-based thing to do,’ DeSantis said at a news conference in St. Petersburg. ‘I think folks that are saying they need to be policing people at this point, if you’re saying that, then you’re really saying you don’t believe in the vaccines.'”
OrlandoSentinel goes on to share: “The bill, which takes effect on July 1, would also ban businesses from requiring so-called “vaccination passports,” putting into law DeSantis’s executive order from last month. The law forbids businesses from requiring proof of vaccination against COVID for entrance.”
WDWNT reported that on the heels of that announcement Walt Disney World sent out a push notification to Walt Disney World guests via the My Disney Experience app that stated: “Important Information: We are aware of the state of Florida’s plans announce today to modify COVID-19 guidelines. We will evaluate this latest guidance and maintain our current health and safety measures at this time, including face covering requirements. We will continue to make thoughtful adjustments to our policy. As COVID-19 vaccines become available, we encourage people to get vaccinated.”
We’ll keep you posted as Disney continues to evaluate their COVID health and safety guidelines in accordance with the CDC and state orders. In the meantime, plan to keep those masks on for the time being.
