Universal Orlando quietly made a change to their mask policy; making masks optional for vaccinated guests in all locations, indoors and outdoors.
Masks Optional at Universal Orlando Resort
We just posted recently when Universal Orlando Resort lifted their mask restrictions to allow guests the option of not wearing their masks when outdoors, while still requiring face masks to enter an attraction or enter an indoor location.
According to the revised COVID safety policy, Universal says “face coverings are optional for fully vaccinated guests. Non-vaccinated guests are asked to wear face coverings at all indoor locations.”
Here are the latest guidelines from Universal:
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.
- Face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests

- Guests who are not fully vaccinated are still expected to wear face coverings while indoors

Team Members are confirmed to still wear masks onstage out of what Universal is calling, “an abundance of caution”. However, when Team Members are backstage, if they are fully vaccinated they will be able to remove their masks.
Universal’s new masks policy for fully vaccinated Guests visiting the Resort will go into effect on May 29.
Universal Reduces Social Distancing
If you read the updated policy, you may notice that Universal also virtually eliminated strict social distancing requirements.
The new language only says “keep a safe distance” rather than the previous 3 feet or 6 feet.
