Officials of Universal Parks and Resorts, presented their plan for reopening to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force today.
As part of their plan, The Universal is proposing to reopen their parks to the public on June 5. The parks would first open on June 1 to employees for testing and run-throughs of procedures. And then on June 3 and 4, the parks would be opened to invited guests and some passholders.
Initially capacity will be limited at the parks, including restaurants and attractions inside the parks.
“We’re going to ramp up very slowly in terms of how many people we allow in each day in each park,” Sprouls said.
Universal’s plan also included several health and safety measures that will be implemented. Employees and visitors will be required to wear face masks. If a visitor doesn’t have one when they arrive, Universal will provide a complimentary one.
Temperature checks will also be required for all employees and visitors. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be allowed to enter. Other safety measures including social distancing with also be incorporated throughout the parks.
A team of employees called “ambassadors” will be scattered throughout the parks to remind visitors of the new rules as well as answer questions.
Universal’s proposal was unanimously approved by the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force. Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings will need to endorse the plan before sending it to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for approval.
Last week, Universal reopened it’s CityWalk to the public in a limited capacity.
