With Universal Studios set to be one of the first parks to open in the country, many wonder what they have in place with covid-19.

While most of Michigan is closed for business, other states have begun to open things back up. That includes Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. For those that are heading to the park, Universal Studios has made it very clear that there is a risk of being exposed to covid-19.

Guests should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend. People who show no symptoms can spread COVID-19 if they are infected, any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit.

Those that do head to the park are asked to comply with the following:

  • Face coverings are required. All guests and employees must wear them in the park.
  • Temperature checks will be taken at the entrances. Guests and employees with a temperature above 100.4 degrees will not be allowed in.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Practice social distancing and keep at least six feet between yourself and others.
  • Markings on the floor are in place to keep groups a safe distance away from each other.
  • Avoid contact with those that are sick.
  • Certain rides and attractions may require the use of hand sanitizer before getting on the ride.

Universal Studios will also be limiting the capacity of guests inside the park and upped their standards of cleaning the park. Also, all of their team members will have extensive training in new procedures. To see all of the rules and protocols for Universal's parks, click here. 

Even though most of us will not be traveling to Florida in the next couple weeks, I'm willing to bet that these practices will be in place for a long time. They are also a good indicator of what we will probably see when Cedar Point and Michigan's Adventure reopen in the future.
