NEWS: Orange County Mayor Requires All People To Wear Masks in County

We know one of the biggest complaints/concerns from many Disney fans is the requirement of masks for all guests ages 2 and up when Walt Disney World reopens. Well, today, this requirement went larger than just the within the property of Walt Disney World.


According to Orlando Sentinel, Orange County Mayor, Jerry Demings announced Thursday (June 18) that every person in the county must wear a mask in an effort to try to slow a resurgence of the COVID-19 seen in the past 10 days.

“We do not want to experience another shutdown in our community,” Demings said, noting there could be more restrictions in the future.

The order will take effect on Saturday, June 20th, and remain in place indefinitely. People are permitted to take off the mask while eating or drinking, but must wear the mask as they enter the establishment, Demings said. Employees of businesses must wear a face covering at all times.

“We’re buying time with this measure,” Demings said until a vaccine or cure for the virus is found. There will not be any criminal sanctions for violations at this time, Demings said, adding “that’s the last thing we want to do.”
