Universal Orlando Park stops requiring the use of masks to those vaccinated
Miami, May 28 (EFE) .- The Universal Orlando theme park (Florida, USA) announced this Friday that it will stop demanding from tomorrow, both outside and inside the facilities, the use of masks to vaccinated visitors against covid-19.
The company said in a statement that "the decision was made based on new guidelines" from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While park visitors will not be required to provide proof of vaccination, Universal Orlando relies on "those who are not fully vaccinated" to wear masks when entering the park.
"We encourage all guests to maintain a safe distance," added the statement, which ensures the team's commitment to "maintaining the highest standards of cleaning and disinfection."
But employees, even those who are fully vaccinated, should wear masks "as a precaution," a spokesperson told local channel WKMG TV.
Current theme park safety guidelines also urge visitors to continue to maintain a "safe distance" from one another.
On June 10, Universal will inaugurate in its Jurassic World theme park the most "intense, fast and high" roller coaster in Florida, the so-called VelociCoaster.
Thrill-seekers will have the opportunity to ascend 155 feet (47 meters) high and be catapulted into their seats at a speed of 70 miles (112 kilometers) per hour in 2.4 seconds, while dodging raptors and saurians. predators in the velociraptor zone.
