The resort will end temperature screenings for guests and employees at its theme park, water park and on-site hotels on Friday, Legoland spokesman Banks Lee confirmed to Spectrum News.
Legoland will also reduce social distancing around the resort, updating markers from six to three feet or more.
The measures have been in place since Legoland reopened last summer.
"The evolution of these procedures has been done in consideration with local health partners and officials, as well as CDC guidelines to ensure families can continue to have the confidence to play safely across our Resort,” Legoland said in an email statement.
Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando recently made similar changes at their parks. Disney World will phase out temperature checks for guests starting May 16. It will begin gradually reducing physical distancing in some areas, while keeping its six feet distancing in “dining locations, merchandise stores and areas where guests can temporarily remove their masks.”
