In late July, Mayor Demings had signed an executive order declaring a state of local emergency in Orange County, Florida. Since then, this state of emergency has been extended several times. However, the state of emergency will end soon.
During today’s press conference, Mayor Demings stated that “fortunately, due to the high number of vaccinated residents and the use of masks, and other security measures that have been implemented in our community, our numbers have plummeted … Due to the low positivity rate I am pleased to announce that I will allow the executive order to expire this afternoon at 3:04 pm so that we will no longer be under a state of local emergency. ”
Mayor Demings noted, however, that should there ever be another deadly wave of cases in the county, he reserves the right to reinstate the executive order to “make sure we do everything we can to curb the propagation “.
What will happen once the executive order expires? Mayor Demings noted that Orange County facilities will continue to require the use of indoor facelifts for county employees until the CDC moves the county from the “substantial” level of risk of spreading. COVID-19 to “moderate”.
As for the use of mask in individual Florida companies, it all depends on the individual rules of that company. Disney World continues to require all guests from the age of 2 to wear masks in all indoor locations, including restaurants, except when actively eating or drinking while standing.. This mask rule will remain in effect unless Disney decides to change it. The change in state of emergency in Orange County, Florida does not directly affect or change Disney’s mask requirement.
Of course, all rules and regulations are subject to change, so be sure to check and see what the situation is when you visit. Stay tuned for more updates.
