With California preparing to lift its indoor mask mandate soon for those vaccinated against COVID-19, the Disneyland resort announced Tuesday that it will follow suit and change its requirements.
Currently, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park require all visitors ages two and older to wear face coverings while indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. They are optional for guests in outdoor spaces.
Starting Thursday, indoor masking will not be required for fully vaccinated guests.
“We expect guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue to wear face coverings at all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters,” Disneyland website States.
Everyone age two or older will still be required to wear a mask in some indoor settings, including Disney shuttle buses and health areas such as the first aid area.
Disney does not require visitors to show evidence of vaccination or a negative coronavirus test, although its website notes that “The State of California strongly recommends that all guests be fully vaccinated or receive a negative COVID-19 test before entering a Disneyland resort.”
Walt Disney World in Florida is also making the same policy changes starting Thursday. The announcement also came Tuesday.
The guidelines are consistent with California, which allows statewide indoor concealment requirements for people who have been vaccinated to expire at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday. For everyone else, masks will still be required in all indoor public places, including stores, bars, gyms and movie theaters.
Whether or not you receive a jab, you should still wear a face covering while riding public transportation and in certain places such as hospitals, homeless shelters and other group housing areas.
