As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, policy changes continue to be made.
Recently, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order suspending all local COVID-19 restrictions. In practice, this affects enforceability of local COID-19 regulations, like the Orange County mask mandate. Disney World has already responded to that order, and now, the Orlando International Airport has done the same.
According to an announcement released by the Orlando International Airport today, the “federal mask mandate requiring the traveling public to wear face masks or coverings at Orlando International Airport remains in effect.” This mandate was due to expire on May 11th, but was recently extended through September 13th.
The mandate applies to “all modes of federally-regulated public transportation.” That includes airports, security checkpoints, and the flights themselves.
If you’re traveling in or out of the Orlando International Airport, you can expect the mask mandate to continue to be enforced there. You’ll have to wear a face covering while in the airport, aboard your flight, etc.
We’ll follow any other changes closely and be sure to keep you updated.
