Universal Face Covering Required Sign 16-9

BREAKING: Universal Orlando Resort Reportedly Will No Longer Require Masks Indoors

Safety measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic at theme parks have been changing on a weekly basis as of late. First, temperature checks were removed and physical distancing requirements reduced to three feet. Then, the mandate for face coverings to be worn while outdoors was relaxed less than two weeks ago. Now, it’s being reported to us that wearing masks indoors will also become optional.

Beginning this coming Saturday, May 29th, the requirement for wearing masks indoors is expected to become optional. This will include eliminating the requirement for face coverings when experiencing attractions, both indoors and outdoors.

Additionally, Team Members assigned to mask enforcement duties are being reassigned to other tasks beginning this weekend, further signaling that masks will, effectively, be entirely optional at Universal Orlando Resort starting Saturday.

This “news” website is always giving out false information about the parks. Dont believe a word they say until the parks make an announcement themselves.

Yes… when you begin to understand that the majority of people, likely 20X the confirmed numbers, had it and didn’t even know… this is where you get the true survival rate. This is also what made the virus so dangerous… the vast majority of the people who got it had no idea and wound up spreading it.

But… but… but… whatever shall we do. The Mask is our protector. The Mask is our savior. Oh mighty Mask, please smite them where they stand. How can our Cult of the Mask continue? Hail Mask… Hail Mask… Hail Mask.
