On Saturday morning, pictures of the 主题公园 were posted to social media by theme park ticket retailer Orlando Informer and the website Universal Park News Today, showing that guests were already taking the new guidance to heart.
The photos showed people standing in lines, riding roller coasters and walking through gift shops, many without wearing masks. Some people still appeared to be wearing masks, while others had them pulled down on their chins. Park staff also appeared to be wearing masks.
Pictures of Universal’s signage were also 在推特上发布 by Orlando Informer. Those signs reflected Universal’s current policy, that masks are “optional for fully vaccinated guests” and required indoors for guests who are not fully vaccinated.
Though guests who are not fully vaccinated are expected to continue to wear face coverings for the safety of other customers and staff, Universal Studios told FOX Business that it is not requiring guests to show proof of vaccination.
根据一个 video posted by Orlando Informer on Twitter, Universal even has a new safety message indicating its updated policy.
在剪辑中, a voice can be heard saying: “Face coverings are not required for fully vaccinated guests. Guests who are not fully vaccinated should wear face coverings while indoors.”
The message also encouraged guests to continue to social distance and to wash their hands.
The clip shows the message being played both in the CityWalk and in other areas of the park.
The CDC eased mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people earlier this month, allowing them to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and in most indoor settings.
