Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings will sign an executive order requiring all residents to wear a face mask in public. The order will go into effect on Saturday and last for an indefinite amount of time. Employees of businesses must wear a face covering at all times.
Orange County reported 212 coronavirus cases Thursday, setting a daily record for new cases.
The WWE Performance Center is located in Orange County and has come under scrutiny regarding face masks. WWE has allowed PC recruits to act as the audience during its weekly shows and this past week, friends and family of roster members were allowed inside the Performance Center as well. Those in the audience do not wear face masks on television.
WWE put out a statement saying, "Attendance was below 20% capacity and social distancing guidelines were adhered to with at least six feet between parties, thus face masks were not required."
It remains to be seen if WWE performers will begin wearing face masks on television. The company has already held it's television tapings for the week and tested all talent and staff on Tuesday following the announcement of a second positive coronavirus test on Monday night.
