Universal Studios Hollywood no longer requires masks, proof of COVID vaccine


Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City no longer requires patrons to wear face masks, or show COVID-19 vaccine or negative test results beginning Friday.

The change to the theme park comes after Los Angeles County dropped its masking mandate for most indoor venues and relaxed vaccine verification rules.

A The Universal Studios spokesperson said face masks continue to be strongly recommended indoors, but are not required.

Six Flags Magic Mountain website also now states that pre-entry vaccine verification and negative COVID-19 test results are no longer required. Face coverings are also not mandatory at Valencia Amusement Park, but are strongly recommended for those who have not been vaccinated.​

Disneyland, on the other hand, requires unvaccinated guests ages 2 and older to mask up indoors. Wearing a face covering is also mandatory for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, on Disney shuttles and at the first aid area.

Six Flags and Universal Studios had begun requiring proof of full COVID-19 vaccinations or negative virus test results from all guests 12 and older in October, to comply with county rules at the time. .

Now, with COVID-19 cases and hospitalization rates declining, LA County is relaxing much of its COVID-19 rules.

Masks are now strongly recommended – but no longer required – in many indoor places, including shops, restaurants and theaters. And vaccine checks are no longer required at outdoor mega-events, which include theme parks, concerts and sports games.
