Here’s the Buzz: Since the park reopened earlier this month, visitors have been required to wear a face mask at all times, except while eating or swimming.

The new policy requires visitors to remain stationary while eating or drinking, while also practicing social distancing.

Uber has been quietly offering the service for months now, but it hasn't been used in some major hot spots like Texas and Florida.
