A guest wears a required face mask due to the Covid-19 pandemic while riding the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel attraction at Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Starting this Thursday, vaccinated guests will no longer need to mask up indoors across most of Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

Face coverings will still be required for all guests ages 2 and older on enclosed Disney transportation at both resorts, like shuttles and monorails. Disneyland will also require masks in “health settings, such as in First Aid.”

“We expect guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters,” Disney World’s website said Tuesday.

Disneyland was more explicit, requiring face masks for all unvaccinated guests ages 2 and up.

Guests are not, however, required to provide proof of vaccination. 

The mask policy updates come days after Universal Orlando Resort announced that vaccinated guests would no longer need to wear face masks and after the state of California lifted its mask mandate.

I’ve been a rideshare driver in New York City for six years, and I take pride in my job and helping my passengers get where they need to go safely. But my safety is not a guarantee. I’m a mom of three. I need to know that I’ll make it home to my kids at the end of each night.

Russians fear toll of sanctions triggered by Putin’s Ukraine invasion

Harsh sanctions from Western nations on Russia have reminded citizens of the country’s 1998 debt crisis.

  • McDonalds and other American businesses have closed in Russia amid its invasion into Ukraine.
  • One expert estimates more than 200,000 Russians have left the country since the start of the war.
  • To counter economic turmoil, Putin has demand “unfriendly” countries pay for natural gas exports in rubles.

The once bustling corner of Moscow’s central Tverskaya Street looked deserted on Wednesday, as Russia’s first-ever McDonald’s franchise – opened in 1990 in a move that symbolized the Soviet Union’s opening to the West – shut its doors.

A large mural depicting a giant, Soviet-era medal – the Order of Victory, the highest military decoration awarded in World War II — loomed over over the empty sidewalk.
