In California, the state on Tuesday ended its requirement to wear masks for vaccinated people. California counties and municipalities are allowed to introduce stricter rules than the state. On the contrary, wearing a well-fitting N95 or KN95 mask offers better personal protection than you and others around you wearing cloth masks. A growing number of experts have said cloth masks are not enough to protect against Omicron and other more transmissible variants. At this stage, it is up to the individual to protect himself adequately if he wishes. No changes have been made to recommendations for wearing masks indoors, and the CDC`s new guidelines for outdoor masks state that even fully vaccinated people should continue to wear a mask at “crowded outdoor” events. This number will be much higher, but it depends on how many days you spend in the parks and whether or not you are ready to wash your masks on vacation. Disney`s change to its mask policy comes after Universal Orlando, Florida, lifted its mask requirement for fully vaccinated diners indoors and outdoors. The new guidelines came into effect on Saturday. Customers who have not yet been vaccinated are encouraged to wear masks indoors, Universal Orlando said.

These cloth face masks meet the standards of the latest FDA recommendations for non-surgical and non-industrial face masks.
It`s something you might not think about otherwise, but wearing a face mask all day can really crack your lips. Be sure to bring a baguette of your favorite lip balm, a balm with natural ingredients is best. Whatever you`re wearing, it`s important that it covers your mouth AND nose.

We have decided that if WDW still has a mask requirement, EVERYWHERE on the property – AT ALL – they will lose a family of loyal customers for life.
