Walt Disney World Updates Policy Regarding Transparent Face Coverings
Walt Disney World has updated their face coverings policy to include guidelines regarding transparent face masks. Read the updated policy below:
Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching. They must also meet all face covering requirements outlined for regular face masks.
As face masks have been more widely produced, transparent face masks have grown in popularity, particularly for those who are hard of hearing and may need to read lips. Transparent face masks are different from a plastic face shield, which guests may only wear as long as they are also wearing a mask.
