As Disney World continues to look for ways to return to normal, they have updated their website with an encouragement to guests to get vaccinated.
The statement is really an expanded statement from an earlier response to new guidelines from Governor Ron DeSantis that suspended local face covering mandates and more. Here is the full statement, emphasis added by BlogMickey.com:
As you prepare to visit, please know that we’ve made updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.
It may be different from the last time you visited. But together, we can find new ways to create magical moments—and memories to treasure.
We are aware of the state of Florida’s plans 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.
Of course, the only way to return to normal is after a rise in vaccination rates and a subsequent relaxation of COVID-19 safety protocols.
So far, Disney has started to relax a few protocols:
- Walt Disney World Ending Temperature Checks
- Disney World Relaxes Face Mask Rule a Day Early
- Disney World Removes Hand Washing Stations
