New Florida Public Health Advisory States Fully Vaccinated People No Longer Required to Wear Face Masks
The Florida Department of Health announced a state surgeon general public health advisory that made changes to earlier guidance on COVID-19 safety practices in the state. Most notably, the advisory rescinds advising fully vaccinated individuals to wear face coverings.
In the latest health advisory, it is stated that “due to COVID-19 widespread vaccine availability, fully vaccinated individuals should no longer be advised to wear face coverings.”
Just before this new advisory, Orange County, Florida announced changes to physical distancing protocols and mask mandates as well. However, private businesses like Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort may continue imposing their own face mask requirements for Guests.
