SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW)– Cedar Point updated its mask policy to reflect the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, and also announced it will be closed on some days in June.

When the park opened for the season last week, masks were required indoors for those who were not actively eating or drinking.

Now, masks are no longer mandatory for those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will not be required.

  • All guests age 10 and older who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face coverings while indoors unless actively eating and drinking.
  • Face coverings for guests who are not fully vaccinated are recommended but not required outdoors unless it is not possible to maintain 6’ of social distancing.
  • Face coverings are recommended but not required indoors or outdoors for guests who are fully vaccinated if social distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, and not have exhalation valves or vents, which allows virus particles to escape. 

Cedar Point also said it had to adjust its calendar “based on the availability of seasonable labor.” The park has ramped up efforts to find workers including offering a $500 seasonal sign-on bonus and increasing seasonal and part-time wages for 2021 to $20 an hour.

As Cedar Point continues its recruiting efforts, the park will be closed on select days in June. Check the park’s website for the most up-to-date calendar.
