Yesterday, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings spoke about the current state of the global health crisis and its impact on the Orlando-area recently. During this time, he reported that he didn’t like the numbers he was seeing.
In the last week, the number of cases places like Orange County (where Disney World partially resides) has significantly risen.
Mayor Demings is concerned there could be a second wave that could far exceed the first spike that occurred back in April.
While he’s urging the public to comply with the new health and safety guidelines issued by government and health officials, he’s also stated there could be potential to make wearing face masks mandatory, especially for certain businesses they’ve linked to recent breakouts through contact tracing.
For now, Demings’ goals moving forward will be to reiterate social distancing and safety measures that have already been implemented, but if cases are still rising, further action may take place.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if masks end up becoming required at select businesses.
