Gov Newsom sent undercover teams to Disney World to inspect reopening protocols

Yesterday California Governor Gavin Newsom gave an update on theme park reopening guidelines. He shared that a team from his administration traveled to Florida to inspect the reopening protocols of Walt Disney World. Inspecting how other theme parks are operating will help his administration issue guidelines for Disneyland and other California theme parks.

“We sent health officials to open and operating theme parks out of state last week, independently of operators, to assess the health safeguards in practice,” said California Health and Human Services Agency spokesperson Kate Folmar. “These visits will help inform our pending theme park guidance.”

Newsom’s team was looking to see what California could learn from other states that have successfully reopened sectors of the economy. They also looked for best practices happening in the Florida theme parks.

“We’re trying to get a better handle on what we’re being told, what we’re reading about, and our own concerns and our own environment as it relates to what makes our theme parks distinctive and unique,” Newsom said during the news conference. “What’s worked in their states and what hasn’t worked in their states as it relates to guidance, as it relates to mandates as it relates to messaging.”

California’s theme parks remain in limbo while state officials give conflicting reopening statements. Newsom said last week that he’s in “no hurry” to reopen Disneyland and other parks while his chief medical officer said state officials plan to issue theme park reopening guidelines “as soon as possible” the day before.

Hopefully, Newsom’s team learned that theme parks like Disneyland can reopen safely and responsibly and they will issue reasonable reopening guidelines soon.
