Most of the focus involving Disney of late has been centered on their streaming platform, and that’s in part due to the fact that their Southern California amusement parks have been shut down. That’s about to change. On Friday, California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly announced that Disneyland and other amusement parks would be allowed to reopen at limited capacity starting on April 1st.
Case of COVID-19 have been dropping recently following the holiday surge and as long as the trend continues, the parks will be allowed to remain open. The rate of infection must remain below 7 cases per 100,000 in a county.
Disneyland closed in March of 2020, but its sister park Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida, has been open since July in a limited capacity. The park is said to have stringent safety measures including a mask mandate and has had not reported outbreaks.
No word on if this will help Governor Gavin Newsom’s pending recall.
