SeaWorld Modifies COVID Policies

SeaWorld parks entertained millions of guests in their parks across the United States, including during the pandemic of 2020. The parks have long held a strong safety policy that included temperature checks, employees wandering the park to enforce the wearing of masks, and disinfecting of rides, merchandise, chairs, and more. We wrote extensively about their changes in 2020. 

Now, a SeaWorld spokesperson reached out to us to advise about a change in their policy based on the latest CDC recommendations.

SeaWorld:

“Based on the recently announced guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, we are modifying our policy regarding face coverings at some of our SeaWorld parks. Face coverings will no longer be required for guests at SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Antonio who are fully vaccinated in accordance with CDC guidance.

We will not require proof of vaccine, but ask our guests to be respectfully comply with our revised policy. In California where the state and local guidance mandates face coverings, we will require all guests at SeaWorld San Diego to wear face coverings until further notice. All SeaWorld park employees will be required to continue to wear face coverings at this time.

The safety of our guests, Ambassadors and animals in our care remains our top priority. We will continue to monitor and address this changing environment as necessary. For more information, guests can stay up to date on our park policies by visiting our dedicated safety website.”
