Last updated:

Effective tomorrow, Universal Orlando Resort will change another COVID-19 related policy. They have announced that masks will no longer be required for any guests. This follows the news that the resort will not require vaccinated Team Members to wear masks.

Previously, Universal required all guests to wear masks indoors. That included all attractions and their queues.

The new policy encourages unvaccinated guests to wear masks indoors. Pictured above is the previous rule requiring masks, but we expect to see updated signage when the policy goes into effect tomorrow. Universal requires unvaccinated Team Members to do so.

This is the latest in a long series of changes to the face mask policies. Universal Orlando Resort is private property and reserves the right to set their own policies independently of community policies.

Various mask policies have been in place as part of the safety measures since the parks reopened in June 2021. It is one of the last pandemic protocols remaining after Universal removed temperature checks and distancing requirements. The resort has adjusted the mask policies on and off in accordance with local case numbers and based on advice from the CDC.
