ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal Orlando confirmed Friday that the theme park is no longer requiring its employees to get weekly COVID-19 tests if that have not been vaccinated for the virus.
The change comes after the Supreme Court ruling against COVID-19 vaccination and weekly testing mandates for businesses last week.
Universal Orlando had announced last week that workers at the theme park will be required to be vaccinated by Feb. 9 or undergo weekly COVID-19 tests.
In a five-page letter that was sent to employees on Jan. 12, those who don’t comply with the new rules could face penalties up to termination.
Officials has said about 90% of active Florida-based cast members were fully vaccinated.
