California Governor Gavin Newsom had a press conference today. During the conference’s question and answer portion, he answered some questions regarding theme parks reopening.
When asked about Bob Iger leaving Newsom’s Economic Recovery Task Force last week, Newsom said he wasn’t surprised. He also acknowledged that there were some disagreements regarding opening a certain major theme park saying, “we’re going to let science and data make that determination.”
Newsom also acknowledged that he knows local businesses are frustrated and want to reopen but the state will be led by a “health-first framework” and they will be “stubborn” about it. He also said they feel there “is no hurry to put out guidelines” for theme parks to reopen.
The state is continuing to work with the theme park industry to figure out the safest way to reopen all theme parks, not just the major ones like Disneyland. Newsom said he does not anticipate any of the larger theme parks reopening until “we see more stability in terms of the data.”
The California theme parks, including Disneyland and Universal Studios, remain in limbo waiting for the state to allow them to reopen.
