ORLANDO, Fla. – SeaWorld Orlando appears to have amended its safety protocols related to COVID-19.

The park no longer lists temperature screenings for guests or employees among its list of safety measures.

SeaWorld also appears to have changed the wording to its “physical distancing” measure.

It now reads, “To promote proper physical distancing throughout the parks, we will install signage and markings throughout our guest areas (including on the ground) to identify appropriate physical distancing.”

The wording no longer specifies the physical distancing requirements at the park.

The company has not yet made an official announcement about the changes. Parkgoers have noted the absence of the temperature check station on social media.

These apparent changes come one day after Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando both announced their plans to do away with temperature screenings for guests and workers.
