As we reported on Thursday, Universal Orlando Resort will provide one free disposable face covering to guests who did not bring their own, and reusable face masks will be available for sale. Play areas will remain closed, and 3D glasses will be handed out individually. Water mists will also be reduction or eliminated throughout the parks.

All of the dining location menus will be converted to single-use with individually packaged condiments and pre-wrapped silverware. No buffets or self-serve options in restaurants will be available. Mobile ordering and contactless payments will be available and encouraged.
