Disneyland, Universal Studios ur CA Gov Newsam to Let Them Ropen – Deadline

The California Attractions and Parks Association issued a statement Monday urging California Governor Gavin Newsom to issue guidelines that would allow the amusement park to reopen in the state. The trade organization represents Disneyland Resort, Universal Studios, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Seaworld San Diego, Notts Berry Farm and Legoland California Resort.

Executive Director Erin Guerrero wrote in her statement, “urges California amusement park governors to quickly issue amusement park guidelines so that these important community attractions can reopen their doors in a responsible way and provide residents with work.” But get back. ”

Disneyland and other area parks closed in March as coronoviruses hit California hard. Since then at least twice, Newsom has said that the state was working with the parks to create guidelines to reopen. The last time he mentioned it, the governor said that the sides were close.

The CAPA statement on Monday indicated that the parks are ready, “In those six months, a detailed plan has been drawn up to reopen the park — they lack capacity, face-covering requirements, stronger for guests and staff.” Health and safety protocols are included, and significant amendments to support physical disturbances. ”

What’s more, CAPA indicates parks are more Compared to some areas already open. “These practices will promote health and safety in ways that are not currently involved in many of California’s activities.”

For example, in Orange County where many of these parks are restaurants, movie theaters and places of worship, indoor operations can resume at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever number is lower. Indoor shopping malls, swap meets and retail stores can open at 50% capacity.

Of course, such a move by Newsom will probably require modification to its recently released four-tier color system, which has already caused a bit of confusion.

While there is no guidance for theme parks and other such attractions at this point, the general guidance of the state on reopening indicates the level of an activity or occupation as to whether it could be:

– Physical distance between individuals of different houses
Select the number of people per square foot
-Limit time that a person is on business or activity
– Reduce extension time
-Using people from different homes
-Limit amount of physical interaction of visitors / patrons
-Incroair airflow (such as outdoor or running windows and doors)
-Limit activities that are known to spread viruses (such as singing, screaming, and heavy breathing)

Many of those indicators will be difficult for the park, including physical distance, exposure time (30 minutes for Disneyland) and refrain from screaming or breathing heavily on the ride to induce both.

Disney Parks Experience and Products chairman Josh D’Amro said at the end of last month that the company had made progress on anti-Kovid measures using technology throughout the park.

D’Amaro also said, “As soon as a date and those guidelines are set, I can tell you, we are ready.”

Because it is an industry that values ​​safety six months ago, California’s amusement parks and attractions six months ago made the difficult decision to voluntarily close in response to COVID – and the effects have been devastating. The weight of tens of thousands of jobs hangs in the balance; Hundreds of tax revenues, supporting important local, state and federal programs, were lost; And local businesses that rely on entertainment continue to struggle with many closures permanently. In those six months, detailed plans were drawn up to reopen the parks – lacking capacity, covering face requirements, strong health and safety protocols for both guests and staff, and supporting physical distance Important modifications are included. These practices will promote health and safety, which are currently not included in many of California’s activities. However, to reopen, the parks require guidance from the state and this guidance is not forthcoming. As indicated by many open amusement parks in the United States and around the world, visiting an attraction would not be the same as COVID, but California’s amusement parks are set to reopen responsibly.
