The Orange County Register is reporting that California is getting closer to reopening Disneyland and other theme parks. In a press conference today, Governor Newsom commented on his discussions with major California amusement park operators.
“Conversations are ongoing, just as a reminder, for theme parks, amusement parks and the like,” Newsom said.
Newsom also announced that Orange County has moved from the most restrictive Tier 1 “widespread” risk level to the next lower Tier 2 “substantial” risk level on the state’s COVID-19 scale. Disneyland is located in Orange County.
Theme parks were not included in the guidance list the state released along with the new Tier system.
According to Governor Newsom, negotiations regarding COVID-19 health and safety guidelines for California theme parks are “making progress.”
“There are still many areas where we are open-ended in terms of our negotiations,” Newsom said during the press conference. “Making progress and advancing in the same space. Getting closer to concluding when and how to safely reopen those sectors.”
COVID-19 epidemiological data for California will help determine how and when to reopen the state’s theme parks.
“The epi data shows us the way and provides us the capacity to make determinations,” Newsom said during the news conference. “We will make those determinations in real time.”
California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly was also at the press conference today. According to Ghaly, theme parks and other sectors will be placed in the state’s four-tier system based on their ability to reduce COVID-19 risk factors.
“As we move forward, we’ll consider the placement of some of these various sectors throughout our different tiers as we begin to develop increasing information about how each of these different sectors can reduce risk,” Ghaly said during the news conference.
This is another step towards the Disneyland Resort theme parks reopening. We will continue to update as information is released.
