PHOTO: Resort Signage Updated to Reflect Exclusion of Face Masks with Exhalation Valves After Policy Change at Walt Disney World

Just a day after Walt Disney World modified its face covering policy to exclude masks with valves, new signage reflecting the changes has been erected at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Similar signage has also begun to pop up at the theme parks, including at EPCOT:

The signage reads as follows:

Face coverings are required for all Guests ages 2 and older.

Face coverings must:

  • Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
  • Fully cover the nose and mouth, and secure under the chin.
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear-loops
  • Allow Guest to remain hands-free

The following are not permitted:

  • Neck gaiters
  • Open-chin triangle bandanas
  • Face coverings with valves, mesh or holes of any kind
  • Costume masks

The face covering policy has undergone a number of changes in the past few weeks, including the banning of neck gaiters and bandanas, as reflected in the sign above, as well as requiring guests to keep their coverings on unless eating or drinking while stationary.

Keep reading WDWNT for continuing updates on the face covering policy.

Well now I have to cancel my trip next week. My daughter has terrible allergies and needs to wear an n95 mask to breathe. Unfortunately they have the valve. I think I am done with Disney.
