Disneyland will be allowed to reopen at limited capacity on April 1, under new rules announced Friday as part of an update to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy”.
California divides its counties into four color levels based on the spread of the coronavirus. The attendance limits are based on the level in which a county is located.
Theme parks, including Disneyland, will be allowed to open at 15% of their capacity in the red level, the second highest level of risk, and only people living in California can purchase tickets.
California Attractions and Parks Association executive director Erin Guerrero said in a statement that the adjustment was “encouraging news” for theme parks in the state.
“Parks now have a framework to reopen safely and responsibly,” Guerrero said. “We appreciate the administration’s willingness to work with the State Theme on every detail of the plan so that parks can responsibly reopen soon, putting people back to work safely and invigorating. local economies. “
