From the official Universal Studios Hollywood website:

“Per LA County’s Public Health order, beginning on October 7, all persons ages 12 and older must be prepared to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test taken within 72 hours of visit, prior to entry to the theme park. Persons ages 18+ must also show photo ID. Full COVID-19 vaccination means that two weeks have passed since receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose series (e.g., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or since receipt of a single-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen). Verification will take place when required based on theme park attendance.”

The update also says that face coverings are required at all times, both inside and outside. Vaccination status does not matter; all guests are required to wear face coverings. At Universal CityWalk, face masks are only required indoors.

The theme park shared this update on Twitter yesterday.

No other theme parks have made confirming vaccination status a requirement for entry. This could change soon as Universal is not the only theme park in LA County.
