Fully vaccinated employees no longer required to wear masks outdoors at Disneyland

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- Starting Saturday, fully vaccinated employees at the Disneyland Resort will no longer be required to wear face coverings outdoors, resort officials announced Friday.

The announcement comes after California fully reopened its economy on June 15.

Cast members who have not been vaccinated yet will still be required to wear masks outdoors and all employees, regardless of vaccination status, will still be required to wear masks indoors, in enclosed vehicles and select health facilities.

"We have evaluated Cal/OSHA's amended regulations for California employees and will begin the first step in adjusting those practices beginning Saturday, June 26," said resort officials.

In addition to the new mask rules for employees, physical distancing will also be eliminated Saturday.
