California Announces Plan for Reopening Theme Parks During Pandemic

As per guidance released by the state Tuesday, California’s major theme parks such as Disneyland and Universal Studios will be forced to postpone their reopenings to a later date.

In accordance with the new guidelines, larger theme parks are permitted to reopen only when the counties they are located in have reached the 4th tier (yellow), and least-restrictive level of the state’s reopening framework. Following their reopenings, these theme parks will also be limited to only 25% capacity.

Currently, Disneyland which is located in Orange County, is ranked at the second tier (red), and Universal studios is at the states most-restrictive tier (purple).

Smaller theme parks are permitted to open when the counties they’re located in reach the third tier (orange) of the states reopening framework.
