Once you have iced then covered in fondant, you dont have to cover. The fondant will seal in the moistness. When I have 3 or 4 cakes due on a Saturday, they are frosted and covered in fondant on Thursday, then I just have to add the gumpaste and other decorations. I do though sometimes, put a large storage tub over to keep dust (or anything else in the air if the windows are open) off of the cakes.

They will be fine as long as your fillings don't require refrigeration.
You can put fondant in the fridge, I do it for all my cakes (I like to transport chilled cakes) and other then the condensation (which evaporates) I've never had a problem.
