As Walt Disney World phases out temperature checks, the company is also scaling back on another COVID-19 safety measure: physical distancing.
The company updated its safety guidance on the official Walt Disney World website to highlight the reduced distance of physical space between guests.
Temporary adjustments are still in place to promote physical distancing. While we will reduce physical distancing measures for Guests across many areas with a gradual, phased approach, six-feet distancing measures will continue in all dining locations, merchandise stores and in areas where Guests can temporarily remove their masks.
The reduction in distance is in accordance to guidance from the CDC, who says 3 feet is an appropriate distance between parties. The original ruling when the pandemic began was 6 feet.
Walt Disney World is also set to phase out temperature screenings for guests May 16th.
