Effective May 15, Universal Studios Orlando will no longer require masks outdoors on their property.
The theme park announced Friday that following new guidance released this week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on mask recommendations, they would be modifiying their mask requirements at their Florida property.
The guidance from the CDC still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings but no longer recommends them outside under most conditions.
Following the guidelines, face coverings will remain required at all indoor locations, including restaurants, shops and indoor hotel public areas.
In addition, face coverings will also be required at all attractions from the moment guests enter the queue to when they exit the experience.
“The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority. Based on guidance from local government and health officials, effective Saturday, May 15, face coverings for guests are no longer mandatory when outdoors at Universal Orlando,”Universal Studios Orlando
Guests should continue to bring their face masks with them for their visit.
Disney has not yet made any decisions regarding mask mandates at their theme parks at this time.
