(FOX NEWS) – Walt Disney World is doubling down on every effort to keep guests and cast members safe within the park as the coronavirus pandemic continues, most recently updating its face mask policy to ban certain kinds of coverings.
As of Monday morning, facial coverings with valves or holes are no longer acceptable PPE, Disney’s Know Before You Go page states. Fan site WDW News Today spotted the update on Sunday.
“At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings,” Disney’s clarification states, citing guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.)
Specifically, all face masks, whether disposable or reusable, worn at the Orlando, Florida, theme park must be made with at least two layers of material, completely cover the wearer’s nose and mouth and be secured with ties or ear loops to allow the wearer to be hands-free.
