I seriously doubt anybody anywhere is going to close down again if there is ready access to vaccines. That’s the ticket out of this, as you’ve emphasized. However, if hospitalizations increase to dangerous levels, I can see indoor-masking coming back, and perhaps capacity constraInts.The parks have been open for awhile with no hit to public perception.
If the public was concerned about the virus you would see a lot more people wearing masks at the parks.
Heck the UK has opened back up right in the middle of the spike and we are gonna close down again?
Makes no sense.
New Jersey’s position is that the overwhelming decisive metric in bringing back masking is hospitalizations. Right now, our capacity is just fine, so it’s not on the table. Honestly, I wouldn’t set foot in Florida without masking given their numbers. I bet well over half the people at WDW aren’t vaccinated. So, Disney’s off my list for quite some time.
Maybe September 2022 (fifteen anniversary of our DisneyMoon), but I won’t go if masking is required (no fun), or necessary by circumstances (Also no fun).
I’m hoping over the next year people get a clue and vaccinate. Covid ain’t going away, so let’s live with it safely.
