Do you think Universal will change their mask policies?
Florida has now moved to Stage 3 restrictions, which means bars, etc. are at 100%. Theme parks also have no state-mandated restrictions. There is a thread in Disney World discussing the possible changes there. During their post-lockdown opening discussions, Disney had to negotiate with their employees (maybe a union?) on the procedures. So, it would make sense that those agreements still be in place.
I discussed this with DH and his theory is that nothing will change at Universal because of liability. They don’t want a class action suit against them for people saying that they caught Covid there.
Another aspect is what effect will easing the Covid restrictions have on the crowds, or really what impact does Universal think will happen to the crowds? There will be those that cancel because they are scared of getting covid. There will be people that will decide to go because of no restrictions. I have to think that the not_worried people outnumber the worried people because of how much busier the water park was versus the regular parks. Water park being basically a mask-free area.
I hope everything is opened up. We had Covid in Jan or Feb (I forget now), but before it was a thing. So, we can’t spread it, and even then it wasn’t a big deal. It didn’t make the top 5 worst respiratory illnesses I’ve had, and I’d have forgotten about it if I hadn’t learned what it was.
