Universal Orlando Updates Indoor Mask Policy


Universal Orlando had updated their mask policy for guests. An email from Universal Orlando states:

“The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority. As a result, face coverings will now be required, effective Friday, Dec. 24 at all public indoor locations within Universal Orlando Resort for both guests and team members regardless of vaccination status – including restaurants, shops, and indoor hotel public areas.

Face coverings are also required at all attractions from the moment guests enter the queue to when they exit the experience. Based on these updates, guests are expected to bring a face covering with them for their visit.”

Starting December 24th, guests and team members at the Universal Orlando Resort, despite vaccination status, will need to wear masks while working at or enjoying indoor locations.

This comes on the heels of Orange County being designated a “rapid riser” for COVID transmission by the White House as per the Orlando Sentinel.

Disney has not changed their policy on indoor mask use with guests and cast members being required to wear a face mask indoors despite vaccination status.

When you step out of the house to go to the Central Florida theme parks, make sure that you have your mask in hand and be prepared to be asked to wear it at indoor locations.
