Universal Studios Extends Closure Through May 31 Amid Pandemic - Read the Statement

Universal Studios is staying closed.

The theme park issued a statement on Thursday (April 9) amid the ongoing health crisis providing an update about the closure.

“We know Coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted many parts of your life – including your travel and vacation plans and we will be eager to welcome you back to our theme parks and destinations when the time comes. For now, we must make the health and safety of our guests and team members our top priority and we will continue to take guidance from health agencies and government officials,” they wrote.

“This means we are extending the closure of Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood at least through May 31. This includes our theme parks and Universal CityWalk at both destinations. The Universal Orlando Resort hotels have also temporarily suspended operations through this time period.”

Many other events and attractions have been postponed or canceled amid the pandemic.
