In response to the many anti-maskers who have tried to abuse company policies (ahem, Ted Cruz, leisurely sipping coffee while flying American Airlines), Disney World has just updated their face mask policy again. This time, the move is intended to stop those who think slowly eating and drinking while walking around is a way to skirt the policy. Below, I’ve highlighted the new verbiage that’s on Disney World’s website under the “Face Coverings” tab.
“Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you should be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.
All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:
Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are not acceptable face coverings.
Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.
The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.”
