ORLANDO, Fla. – Disney World has made another update to its face mask policy, further clarifying when guests can remove masks at restaurants.
What you need to know
- Disney World updates mask policy
- The update clarifies the rules for places to eat
- Visitors must wear face masks while “standing, waiting or sitting” in restaurants.
The updated policy now specifies that visitors to restaurants must wear their masks while “standing, waiting or sitting.”
“Face covers for each guest ages 2 and up, to be worn in all public areas and can only be removed while actively eating or drinking,” the policy says on the Disney World website. “Face shields should be worn while standing, waiting or sitting in dining rooms.”
Previously, the mask policy for restaurants was not that specific.
“Face covers for each guest ages 2 and up, to be worn in all public areas, including when entering and exiting restaurants, and can be removed while eating or drinking,” please read policy above.
Disney World has updated its face mask policy multiple times since it reopened after its pandemic-related shutdown last summer. One notable change was when Disney specified that guests must keep their face masks on unless they “actively eat while parked” at the parks and Disney Springs.
Just last month, the face mask policy was updated to say that even visitors who have received the COVID-19 vaccine will still need to wear face masks.
