Disney has changed the mask policy at its US-based theme parks following new guidance from health officials and government.
Starting Friday, the company will require all guests, regardless of their immunization status, to wear face coverings inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California. Children under the age of two are exempt from this mandate.

The policy change comes as Covid cases continue to rise in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed the course on Wednesday and recommended that fully vaccinated people resume wearing masks indoors in places with high rates of Covid transmission. These hot spots include states like California and Florida.

Disney has updated its safety policies in accordance with local health regulations both nationally and internationally since the start of the pandemic. More recently, the company has started requiring proof of Covid vaccination or a negative Covid test before entering its Paris-based theme park based on French guidelines.
