Universal Orlando to remove face mask requirement for fully vaccinated guests

ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal Orlando announced Friday that it will no longer require guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear face masks indoors or outdoors.

The change is set to go into effect on Saturday, Feb. 12.


In December, the theme park went back to requiring masks indoors for guests and workers regardless of vaccination status.

As of Saturday, park officials said guests who have not been vaccinated will be encouraged to wear face coverings while indoors.
