Universal Orlando Resort will no longer require masks anywhere on property for those that have been fully vaccinated, but will not be checking vaccination status.

Starting tomorrow, Saturday, May 29th, guests that have been fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear a mask anywhere at the Universal Orlando Resort.

Universal has said that they will not be checking the vaccination status of any guests visiting the resort. Guests that are not yet fully vaccinated are expected to continue to wear masks while indoors, including while riding attractions and visiting gift shops, etc.

The company’s official statement follows:

In accordance with CDC guidelines, face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests, indoors or outdoors. While we do not require proof of vaccination, we do expect those who are not fully vaccinated to wear face coverings while indoors. We encourage all guests to keep a safe distance between travel parties, and we remain focused on maintaining the highest cleanliness and sanitization standards.

Universal has also removed any mention of how far away from other guests you should remain while social distancing. They recently shortened it from 6 to 3 feet, (or one meter,) but the website now only uses the term “safe distance between travel parties.”

At this time it is expected that Team Members will continue to wear a mask when in areas with guests, regardless of their vaccination status.

Walt Disney World is still requiring masks for all guests while indoors and on attractions at this time.
