You know what's funny?
We will see what happens. I believe WDW will end up brining masks back indoors as well. That is their choice.Yes. We dropped masks for vaccinated one random day on a Thursday in May so how is that any different? It’s a dial that can and should be ramped up or down depending on the situation. This is just CDC guidance, not a mandate. Businesses will have to decide. My gut says if they bring masks back indoors they won’t relax that again until they are certain the trend is down so it won’t be the day you go from orange to yellow but maybe a few weeks later to ensure it’s continuing downward.
On a whole though, I still can't see these updated CDC guidelines around masks making a bit of difference to change the path we are on, unless a ton of businesses require masks IN CONJUCTION with other significant mitigation efforts such as capacity limits, etc. And remember where spread was mostly occurring in the winter? In private homes and settings. Have we determined if it is any different this time?
