Here's what we can expect from Universal's proposal

Though we don't know exactly what Universal will propose in their reopening plan, the preliminary recommendations from this task force are 50% capacity restrictions during a Phase 1 period, and an increase to 75% capacity in Phase 2, and we expect to see some kind of increasing capacity cap along these lines in the resort's proposal that will be presented today. 

In addition, increased cleanliness measures will also be a part of Universal's reopening plan, including touchless hand sanitizer at each ticketing entry and turnstile, and increased sanitation procedures, including wipe-downs of ride surfaces, railings, and surfaces.

Universal will also likely implement the new safety rules that have been mandated by Walt Disney World's Cast Member union to ensure the health of workers at Disney's theme parks, which include the requirement for all visitors (and employees) to wear masks when visiting the theme parks, as well as go through a temperature screening before they are allowed to enter. 

This agreement also requires theme parks to install clear plastic barriers at all of its cash registers, and encourage touchless transactions to minimize the virus transmission risk to both visitors and employees.

Though we don't know exactly when theme parks in Florida will reopen it looks like we should have some idea of when a reopening could occur in the very near future. Are you excited for the theme parks to reopen, or do you think this is too soon?

As always, while this situation is evolving, all theme park fans should check out the CDC's official site here, which has information on the virus and how to prevent its spread.
