It looks like theme parks like Disneyland and Universal Studios will have wait longer to reopen!
New guidelines have been released earlier today and it says
Larger theme parks will only be allowed to reopen in the least-restrictive, or yellow, fourth tier of the state's reopening framework, and even then, capacity will be limited to 25%.
So basically the County needs to move into the Yellow Tier before they can reopen.
Dr. Clayton Chau, The director of Orange County Health Care Agency said
"Personally, I think that we can look forward to a yellow tier by next summer, hopefully. Hopefully,"
Below are some of the guidelines that came out today
Theme park reopening guidelines include:
- Smaller theme parks may resume operations in tier 3, with limited capacity at 25% or 500 people, whichever is fewer
- All theme parks may resume operations in tier 4 at 25% capacity
- All theme parks must implement a reservation system and screen guests for symptoms in advance. Face coverings are also mandatory throughout the park, except while eating or drinking
- Only residents of the same county as the theme park will be permitted
Disneyland has released a statement regarding these new guidelines
But this does sound promising, apparently when it comes to outside sporting events
The state will also allow in-person attendance at outdoor sporting events in counties that are in the orange tier, with capacity limited to 20%. Counties in the least-restrictive yellow tier can only allow capacity at 25%. Ticket sales must be in advance and face coverings will be required.
