Disney World to still require masks for those who get COVID-19 vaccine

Officials at Walt Disney World say even if you get the COVID-19 vaccine, you will still have to wear a face covering at the parks. 

The company made the announcement in a safety rules update. 

"Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, masks should still be worn even if someone is vaccinated.

"Not enough information is currently available to say if or when CDC will stop recommending that people wear masks and avoid close contact with others to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19," the CDC’s website said. "Experts need to understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide in real-world conditions before making that decision."
