CityWalk at Universal Orlando re-opened today with new health and safety precautions in place.
These updated protocols include face mask requirements for guests and employees, limited hours, social distancing measures, and required temperature checks. Here was our experience was like with the temperature screening required for entry!
Many of the health and safety measures which were announced for CityWalk are similar to those that will be implemented at Disney Springs when it re-opens starting May 20th. One of these protocols includes a required temperature screenings for all guests and employees.
According to Universal, guests with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be admitted. Our team visited CityWalk to get a first-hand experience of the temperature screening process, and here’s what we learned!
Before our reporter even made it to the temperature scanning area, there were signs all over the CityWalk area detailing the precautions being taken. Universal Orlando made sure to detail the importance of face masks, frequent hand-washing, distancing of at least 6-feet apart, and temperature checks.
Hand-sanitizing situations were placed around the entrance area before and after the temperature checks. Guests were placed 6-feet apart from one another as they waited in line to enter CityWalk.
Although there were plenty of people at CityWalk to visit the shops and dining locations, the process moved smoothly and quickly. An officer wore a face shield before waving a contactless forehead thermometer in front of the guest. In order to get an accurate reading, hats or anything blocking someone’s forehead had to be taken off.
After the temperature was read without any physical contact, guests moved onto bag check before entering CityWalk. Overall, the process was fairly simple, and the team members were incredibly friendly throughout.
We will continue to keep you updated with the rest of our experiences while we visit Universal Orlando’s CityWalk on reopening day!
