BREAKING: Universal Studios Hollywood Expands COVID-19 Policy to Require Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test for Ages 5 and Older

Universal Studios Hollywood has expanded its COVID-19 policies to require all guests age 5 and older to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test from the last 72 hours in order to enter the park.

The previous policy only required guests aged 12+ to meet the criteria. With the vaccine rollout to children ages 5-11, the park has now adjusted its policy to include that age group in accordance with the new LA County Public Health order.

The full policy reads, “Per LA County’s Public Health order, all persons ages 5+ must be prepared to show proof of full FDA or WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccination (a full 14 days after final dose was administered), or a negative test taken within 24 hours (antigen i.e., “rapid” test) or 48 hours (PCR test) of visit, prior to entry to the theme park. A COVID-19 self-test, sometimes referred to as a “home test,” is not acceptable. Persons ages 18+ must also show photo ID. Verification will take place when required based on theme park attendance. Children under the age of 5 are not required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result. Regardless of vaccination status, face coverings are required to be worn at all times, both indoors and outdoors, when visiting the theme park. At Universal CityWalk, face coverings are required to be worn indoors.”
