Universal's theme parks are surveying fans about potential changes to parks' operating procedures once they reopen, including requirements for face masks and temperature checks.
The survey, which was emailed this evening, begins by stating that "once state governments permit it, Universal Orlando will reopen." It then asks "how likely are you to consider visiting if the park reopens following its pre-Coronavirus standard operating and safety procedures?" with responses ranging from "very likely" to "very unlikely."
The short survey goes on to ask respondents to respond to potential changes to resort operating procedures, with reactions ranging from "this would make me feel more comfortable" or "this would be a major problem for me." On the next page, Universal asks people to record their reactions if Universal did not implement the changes.
Hearing from readers, there appear to be multiple versions of the survey. But aggregating the questions, the suggested changes include:
Many states and the federal government have now released guidelines for allowing businesses to reopen once the number of Covid-19 cases begin to decline in communities. As we suggested earlier this week, these many of these guidelines will require theme parks to change their standard operating procedures to comply.
Universal's survey provides specific examples of such changes. One cannot infer that these are changes that Universal would implement once it reopens its parks - only that Universal would like to know what the public reaction to these potential changes would be.
Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood are closed through at least May 31, according to the latest statements from the parks.Tweet
