Orange County leaders met for a press conference yesterday to discuss reopening the county. The press conference took place with the Disneyland Resort as its backdrop. Three Orange County mayors were in attendance. They discussed the impact that COVID-19 and the state closure has had on businesses and citizens alike.
The letter locals can sign says:
“Our community is struggling. With at least 193,000 jobs lost, it’s time to get people back to work and reopen the economic engine of our Southern California economy.
Guest and employee safety have always been Disneyland Resort’s #1 priority. That remains true today especially now when safety has never mattered more.
With our economy and community struggling, we can’t let our theme parks get left behind. It’s been nearly six months since theme parks were shut down. It is time to get people back to the jobs they love and make sure our city can reopen safely, for all of us.
It’s time and Disneyland has proven it is ready through the successful reopening of Downtown Disney in Anaheim and its other parks around the world. Click the link below to urge Governor Newsom to help our parks safely reopen.
We’ve already demonstrated re-opening can be done safely and responsibly – allowing business to re-open, people to return to work and tax revenues to revive, while complying with federal, state, and local guidance to ensure the welfare of residents, employees, and visitors.”
