Universal Orlando is reducing mask requirements for fully vaccinated employees


ORLANDO, Florida. – Universal Orlando will drop its mask requirement for fully vaccinated employees starting Saturday.

The resort said its fully vaccinated staff can walk without a mask outdoors and in certain indoor spaces, with a few exceptions.

Fully vaccinated team members in indoor or outdoor backstage areas can, with a few exceptions, do without a mask. All employees who are on the stage indoors must continue to wear face covering, according to the parks.


When Universal Orlando lifted its mask requirement for fully vaccinated guests a week ago under updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the resort upheld the requirement for its employees “out of great caution,” according to a spokesman.

Before the elimination of the mask requirement for fully vaccinated guests indoors, the parks had already lifted the mask requirement for all guests outdoors. At that time, all indoor locations, including restaurants and attractions, were required to wear masks.

It is not yet known when the parks will be fully utilized again.

“We always manage attendance to provide a safe and enjoyable guest experience, but plan to revert to pre-COVID attendance numbers when staff and operating conditions permit,” a spokesman told News 6.
