Universal Studios Hollywood joins Disneyland, dropping mask mandate

Theme parks across the country have started adjusting their mask requirements amid the drop in the omicron variant.

Universal Orlando Resort dropped its mask mandate for those vaccinated a few weeks ago and Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort followed soon after. When those decisions were made, Universal Studios Hollywood dropped its exterior mask requirements but kept the interior mask mandate in place.

Until now.

Universal Studios Hollywood recently updated its mask policy and now fully vaccinated guests are no longer required to wear a mask inside or outside. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask indoors, but no guest is required to wear a face covering outside, regardless of their vaccination status.

Universal notes on its website that all guests must be prepared to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test, as well as photo ID.

The website policy reads as follows:

In accordance with the LA County Public Health Order, all individuals 5 years of age and older must be prepared to show proof of full FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccination (14 full days after last dose was administered) or a negative test performed within 24 hours (antigen, i.e. “rapid” test) or 48 hours (PCR test) of visit, prior to entry to the theme park. A COVID-19 self-test, sometimes called a “home test”, is not acceptable. Guests aged 18 and over must also show photo ID. A third-party COVID-19 testing site is available and offers rapid testing on our property. Children under 5 are not required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result. Inside the theme park, all guests who are not fully immunized must wear face coverings inside. On CityWalk, all guests, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a face covering indoors.

At this point, visitors are still required to wear face coverings inside CityWalk.
