There have been several changes to health and safety measures over the last year.
After theme parks like Universal Orlando and Disney World relaxed their mask policies earlier this summer, we are starting to see them change again. Disney World recently announced that masks would be required indoors again, but now there has been an update for Universal Orlando’s theme parks.
According to the Universal website guests will not be required to wear face masks indoors at Universal Orlando, but they are encouraging guests to follow the latest CDC guidelines. The CDC now recommends that all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors in high-risk areas.
Universal Orlando will require Team Members working indoors to wear a face mask. Universal said in a statement to WESH that “The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority.”
These updates come after Orange County, Florida declared a state of emergency due to the uprise in COVID-19 cases. Orange County, where Universal and Disney World are located, has been reporting nearly 1,000 new COVID-19 cases daily.
