Universal Orlando is dropping its coronavirus mask requirement for fully vaccinated guests.
From Saturday, every guest who has reached the two-week mark of their last required vaccination dose no longer has to hide in the park area. According to the company, this applies to both the outdoor and indoor areas of the park.

However, customers who are not fully vaccinated are still expected to wear appropriate face-covering to ensure the safety of park staff and guests.
“While we do not require proof of vaccination, we expect our guests to adhere to this revised policy and wear face covers if they have not been vaccinated,” a Universal Orlando spokesperson told FOX Business.

The CDC earlier this month relaxed mask-wearing instructions for fully vaccinated individuals so that they can no longer wear masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor spaces.
“Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities – big or small – without wearing a mask or physically distancing themselves,” said Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, during a briefing at the White House at 13th.
Pharmacies like CVS to large retailers like Costco and Target and grocers like Wegmans, Trader Joe’s and Kroger have all changed their previously strict guidelines so that fully vaccinated guests can remove their masks unless required by the state or local .
