Universal Orlando Resort has finally reopened its parks to guests ready to experience all the exciting attractions and rides. In an effort to provide a safe and fun theme park experience, Universal Orlando have adopted new health and safety measures to ensure the well-being of all guests and Universal team members. If you plan on visiting any Universal Orlando park, be sure to read up on the following guidelines before you go.
Universal’s New Health and Safety Guidelines
Following CDC guidelines, Universal Orlando has implemented additional safety and sanitation procedures to limit the spread of COVID-19. Such measures include:
- Requiring face masks – All guests and team members will be required to wear a protective face covering during their visit. If you don’t already have one, Universal will have them available for purchase. If you plan on going to Volcano Bay, face coverings are recommended, except for when you’re swimming.
- Requiring temperature check – Guests will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Those with a temperature of 100.4 °F (38 °C) or higher will not be permitted to enter.
- Washing hands often – Frequent hand washing with soap and water is encouraged.
- Maintaining social distancing – It’s essential to keep at least 6 feet (2 meters) of distance between your group and others. Team members will help assist with this when needed. For example, team members will help guests sit an adequate distance from other parties on attractions that have a seating component.
- Following floor markings – Spacing guides, directions, and floor markings will be placed throughout the park to help maintain social distancing.
- Avoiding contact with those who are sick – Staying away from those who are sick is essential in ensuring that you don’t transmit the same illness.
- Using hand sanitizer – Guests will be required to use provided hand sanitizer before boarding ride vehicles at select locations.
- Following direction from team members – Guests are implored to work with and listen to Universal team members as they transition to enforcing these new operational procedures. They have been trained extensively in these new protocols and will be a reliable authority in ensuring a safe visit to Universal Orlando.
Additional Temporary Measures
In keeping with CDC and local health and safety official recommendations, Universal Orlando implements additional temporary safety precautions, which include:
- Limiting overall park capacity
- Following distancing and spacing guidelines in all attractions, restaurants, and shops
- Increasing cleaning and disinfection in all areas, with special focus on high touch surfaces
- Requiring temperature checks and face coverings for all Universal team members
