In an email to team members, Universal Parks & Resorts EVP & Chief Administrative Officer John Sprouls, shared an update to the company's Coronavirus vaccination and testing policy.

What’s Happening:

  • The Federal government, through the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recently issued an Emergency Temporary Standard requiring all private employers with 100 or more employees to implement a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, or implement a policy that allows employees to either get vaccinated or to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering at the workplace.
  • Through the letter and general messaging, Universal strongly encourages all team members to receive the vaccine and subsequent booster shots.
  • 93% of team members have shared their vaccination status, and a majority are fully vaccinated.
  • Effective yesterday, January 10th, the following policies are in effect:
    • Any Team Member who has not attested to their vaccination status, must immediately attest and provide proof of their vaccination if partially or fully vaccinated.
    • If you are unable to be fully vaccinated by February 9th, 2022, you will be required to follow a strict weekly COVID-19 testing cadence and continue to wear a face covering. The company will initially pay for the testing and will provide the testing onsite at select locations.
