The last Universal Studios theme park to remain open is now set to close temporarily, as well.
The government of Singapore has announced what amounts to a stay-at-home order for the nation, which will close Universal Studios Singapore along with the resort of Resorts World Sentosa's attractions starting next week. (Universal Studios Singapore is part of the Resorts World Sentosa integrated resort, which includes a major casino and several hotels.) The order will remain in place from April 7 through May 4.
Universal Studios Singapore had remained open, though with a reduced attraction line-up, as Singapore followed a policy of aggressive testing and social contact tracing to isolate Covid-19 cases coming into the country, which is one of the largest commercial hubs on the Pacific rim. But with community transmissions rising, Singapore officials have decided that closing schools and businesses and ordering people to stay home is now necessary.
With this new order, which is in effect for all attractions throughout Singapore, Universal Studios Singapore joins its siblings in Orlando, Hollywood, and Osaka, Japan in closing. The U.S. theme parks are officially closed only through the middle of this month, but stay-at-home orders in Florida and California would preclude them opening at that time.
