And now, the city of Anaheim (where Disneyland Resort is located) has just issued a citywide face-covering requirement for all residents and visitors.

Due to a surge in cases, New Jersey and New York added California to their travel advisory yesterday. The executive order requires travelers to complete a 2-week self-quarantine when returning from a state with a high infection rate. Now, Anaheim has issued a citywide face-covering requirement. According to Anaheim’s website, the new order requires the use of face coverings:

  • Inside and in line for any indoor public space
  • At any healthcare setting
  • Using public transit or rideshare
  • At workplaces in common areas
  • For any food service, packaging or distribution
  • In any room or enclosed area where you’re unable to distance from those outside your own household.
  • Outside when within six feet of others

The website also states those with special considerations would be exempt, and face coverings are not required in certain situations:

  • Children younger than 2
  • Those with health, mental or developmental considerations
  • Those who face workplace risks from wearing a face covering
  • Medical treatments where removal is necessary
  • While eating or drinking
  • While exercising outdoors or indoors when distanced from others
  • While working outdoors when distanced
  • Those who are incarcerated

Orange County, Florida mandated face masks a few weeks ago and is also on New York and New Jersey’s travel advisory. At this time, the requirement doesn’t have an expiration date, but we’ll continue to provide you with more updates.
