“There is not a single documented Covid infection anywhere in the world from casual outdoor interactions, such as walking past someone on a street or eating at a nearby table.” Per the NYT. The outdoor masking should be ended tomorrow.

Just playing devil's advocate but even if there were a case of walking by someone, how would that possibly be tracked?

I think that's where the science regarding transmission would have to come into play. If people got COVID from simply walking past each other, the number of cases would be off the charts. The CDC said from the start that the virus is primarily transmitted from prolonged contact, usually indoors, with an infected person. That hasn't changed.

Chapek explicitly mentioned on the earnings call as part of why mask policies may be changing. I'm sure it was tongue in cheek (at least in part) but the CEO did mention it.
He wasn’t really saying the heat is part of why. The why is because the science and guidance has changed. His comments about the heat were to reference a benefit of them being removed not a cause.

Exactly. He is spinning this as, “our guests will be much more comfortable (they will), so they’ll stay longer and spend more.”

Can anyone verify how Disney Springs is working now? They were taking up far too many parking spaces in the garages for the temp + security checks. Hopefully they've found a better solution now that the temp portion is gone.

queue for security still snaked through that one area, just no temp checks.
