Universal Studios Hollywood To Require Proof of Vaccination Starting October 7!


A major update has been at Universal Studios Hollywood because the park resides in Los Angeles County. Starting October 7, all visitors over the age of 12 will be required to show proof of full vaccination per LA County’s Public Health order.

As stated in the Twitter post from Universal Hollywood above, being full vaccinated means that you received your second dose (or only dose of Johnson and Johnson) two weeks prior to visiting. Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination will be a vaccination card or photo/digital photo of vaccination card (including name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date last dose administered), a digital vaccination record from the California Department of Public Health or an approved company, or documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider.

If you aren’t vaccinated and would like to visit the park you will be required to show negative test taken within 72 hours of visit, prior to entry to the theme park. Acceptable forms of proof of negative test will be a printed document, email or text message displayed on a phone from a test provider or laboratory. The information should include guest’s name, type of test performed, and negative test result. A COVID-19 self-test, sometimes referred to as “home test,” will not acceptable. Face masks will still be required to be worn both indoors and outdoors unless you are actively eating or drinking. This all applies to Halloween Horror Nights as well. At Universal CityWalk, face coverings are required to be worn in all indoor locations (they are optional outdoors).

Six Flags Magic Mountain also resides in Los Angeles County, which has made this new mandate for theme parks, but has yet to announce any policy updates. We expect their policy to reflect on their website any day now. This new mandate does not affect Disneyland as it is in Orange County.
