Many have changed over the past two years in terms of health and safety measures at U.S. theme parks.
We have seen that some parks require a COVID-19 vaccination test or a negative test in accordance with county ordinances, others (such as Disney World) have gone so far as to require indoor masks only and others have moved to recommend masks instead of imposing them. . I, As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Orange County, FL, Universal Orlando is changing its facial mask policy once again.
According to the Universal Orlando website, Facial coverage will be required at all Universal Orlando Resort indoor public places for both guests and team members, regardless of vaccination status as of Friday, December 24, 2021. This includes restaurants, shops and public areas inside the hotel.
Besides, Masks must also be worn at all attractions from the time the guests enter the queue until they leave the experience.
Mask requirements for team members have also been expanded, with Team members who are not fully vaccinated should wear masks when they are on stage outdoors, both indoors and outdoors. Team members who are vaccinated may remove their mask when they are on stage outdoors or behind the scenes outdoors, although they will still be required at all indoor locations.
Previously, team members who were fully vaccinated did not have to wear a face mask anywhere during work.
These changes respond to growing concerns about the Omicron COVID-19 variant and the The recent reclassification of the Orange County CDC to the COVID-19 Community Transmission “High” category. Under the “High” category, the CDC says everyone should wear a mask in indoor public settings, so this policy change is in line with these recommendations.
