Walt Disney World reinstating indoor mask requirement

Posted Thursday, July 29, 2021 9:43 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Starting Friday, all Walt Disney World guests 2 and up will be required to wear masks while indoors and on Disney transportation including buses, the monorail, and the Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status. The update in Disney's policy came after Orange County mayor Jerry Demings urged residents and visitors to wear masks when in an indoor space with others whether they are vaccinated or unvaccinated.

Imagine if we had the discipline of New Zealand early on combined with a unified vaccination commitment. We would be done with this already.

I have wondered about that. Would we be done with it if it continues to spin around in the world? No doubt we would be in a better situation with deaths and hospitalizations, but the vaccinated continue to be testing positive. Granted the seriousness of those cases is greatly diminished, but I am starting to wonder how long it is going to take the virus to mutate to something that does an end around the vaccine. Can a country declare victory until the world can?

If fewer people have it in the first place, there are fewer opportunities to carry infection. Breakthrough infections were expected, and they're actually lower than what the vaccine trials predicted. But yes, certainly with it running unconstrained elsewhere, there's risk of mutation that creates something that could be vaccine resistant, and that would be bad.

Or one political party and their media yelling their followers to do the opposite just to “own the libs”
