Florida Orange County Mayor Ends State of Emergency

Slowly but surely, we’re seeing things return to pre-COVID days. While Disney has recently lifted the requirement of wearing masks outdoors, we’re curious with news released today what Walt Disney World’s next step may be. Florida’s Orange Country Mayor has ended the state of emergency, which lifts all COVID restrictions, including the mask mandate.



As reported by OrlandoSentinel: “With the threat of COVID-19 fading, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings opened his third annual state-of-the-county address Friday by announcing the official end to the state of emergency he imposed March 13, 2020, to help fight the spread of coronavirus. “The heavy clouds of COVID-19 that hung over our region are dissipating and our economy is growing again. By mid-summer, I believe we will be over the acute phase of the virus and our economic engines will be in full throttle,” he said in the speech to a hybrid audience — some online and some at the Orange County Convention Center. “We are back on course for destination greatness!”

On May 29 Walt Disney World’s theme park neighbor, Universal Orlando, removed their mask requirement throughout their entire property (both indoors and outdoors). While Disney’s mask requirement at all indoor locations is still in place, we’re curious to see how long Disney continues the requirement with this news. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as Disney continues to follow and adjust accordingly in alignment with CDC and local official guidelines.
