Universal Orlando Announces Lay-Offs

Just a few short weeks after opening for the first time since coronavirus forced its parks to shut down, Universal Orlando announced that it would need to lay off some of its team members.

Universal issued the below statement:

Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay all closed in mid-March to stop the spread of COVID-19. They reopened June 5 but with reduced capacity and social distancing guidelines in place.
