Universal Orlando Resort is extending their closure through Apr. 19. This includes the theme parks and Universal CityWalk. The Universal Orlando Resort hotels have also temporarily suspended operations. The resort will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed. 

Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando had previously announced both parks would close starting Sat. Mar. 14 due to coronavirus concerns. The closures were another in the line of large crowd cancellations and followed other theme parks like Disneyland and Disney World, which closed the same weekend.
