Face Masks With Valves No Longer Allowed at Walt Disney World

Disney continues to update its face covering policy as it continues to move forward with Walt Disney World Resorts’ phased reopening. Recently, this meant an update that no longer allowed neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are no longer considered acceptable face coverings. Walt Disney World has continued to update its policies.

According to Scott Gustin, the policy no longer allows face coverings with valves, mesh materials or any face covering with holes. Here is the updated wording from Disney:

At this time, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.

Face coverings are intended to reduce the transfer of respiratory droplets, and exhalation valves and materials with holes do not adequately filter air that is exhaled.

Disney continues to work to make the experience for both guests and cast members as safe as possible during the phased reopening. Safety protocols for this have included face coverings, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning, reduced contact for transactions, temperature screenings, park capacity limitations, and more use of the My Disney Experience app.

DAPS MAGIC will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they become available. What do you think of this policy update regarding face coverings? Share your thoughts in the comments below or with DAPS MAGIC on Facebook or Twitter!
