Orange County, Florida Moves From ‘Moderate’ to ‘Substantial’ COVID-19 Tier

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Orange County, Florida is now in the “substantial” tier when it comes to COVID-19 transmission. The county has been in the lower “moderate” tier for two weeks.

In the “substantial” tier, it is recommended all individuals wear face masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.

At Walt Disney World, guests and Cast Members have been required to wear masks indoors — except when eating or drinking — regardless of vaccination status.

At Universal Orlando Resort, masks are currently optional for guests and Team Members indoors.

Neither resort has indicated at this time if they will change their mask guidelines.

    1. This has nothing to do with Desantis but everything to do with the brokenness of the CDC and their meaningless guidance that is ruining American lives. Educate yourself please before posting here.

  1. These tiers are meaningless. The constant back and forth is unmanageable. Time to let it go – COVID is here to stay.
