UPDATE: California To Begin Following New CDC Mask Guidelines on June 15

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed its guidelines regarding COVID-19 health and safety to state those who have been vaccinated do not need to wear masks or physically distance. Since then, both Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort began allowing guests to go maskless outdoors, in addition to reducing physical distancing.

However, California’s state regulations have kept mask mandates in place. Disneyland Resort released a statement this weekend reiterating that masks were still required in all areas of the theme parks.

California has now indicated that it will align with the CDC’s new guidelines beginning June 15, meaning mask rules may change at that time for Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood. Neither has yet to make an announcement regarding the change, though.
