Fake masks are no replacement for the real thing.

According to recent reports, Disney World in Orlando, Fla., was digitally adding masks to photos of unmasked guests on certain rides. Now, the theme park reportedly says it will no longer be doing this.

In an attempt to not punish guests who were following the rules, Disney World was digitally adding masks to photos of guests who were caught not wearing masks on certain rides, USA Today reports. This was reportedly done in response to a policy that the theme park has in regards to wearing masks.

According to the policy, photos taken by the park’s cameras that showed guests not wearing masks on rides would not be eligible to be sold. Unfortunately, this had a negative impact on other riders who wore their masks on the ride. In an attempt to make it possible for them to still purchase a photo, Disney World reportedly digitally added masks to the photos.

Since reports of this practice have gone public, however, the theme park has apparently decided to reverse this policy.
