On April 29, 2021, the Florida Department of Health signed into law an order rescinding the order of March 1, 2020, regarding fully vaccinated people. In the newest order signed, Individuals who have been fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a mask except in limited circumstances. Also in the order was making all State level government offices should conduct business with in-person operations and services. Meaning that all government office buildings should open and fully go back operations.
The order states that 9 million Floridians have been fully vaccinated. There is still a State of Emergency order for the whole state. This helps with making sure everyone in the state is eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine. As of Monday, April 5, all Florida residents shall be eligible to receive any COVID-19 vaccine as prescribed by the Food and Drug Administration. Orlando itself is sitting around 46% of all residents who have been vaccinated.
I won’t go into the debate of the politics about masks or no masks. Not my job! I will point out though, this is for the State and Government at State and Local levels. This does NOT mean Disney or Universal must follow these orders. Disney, Universal, and all the local Theme Parks are privately owned and set the rules.
Walt Disney World resorts recently relaxed the mask policy for PhotoPass and taking pictures in the parks. Fully Vaccinated People must still wear a mask at all other times when inside the parks, resorts, or Disney Springs.
