Universal Orlando employees and guests over the age of three are required to wear face coverings everywhere they go to protect themselves from the novel coronavirus. Coverings can be removed only when a person is "actively eating or drinking" while they are "stationary and maintain appropriate social distancing," according to Universal’s news release.
Other health and safety protocols the hospitality giant put in place are focused on screening, spacing, sanitization, and limiting capacity inside its parks, restaurants, and venues.
