Strict new reopening rules have been established for major theme parks in California, including Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, as officials grapple with safe ways to restart the economy while dealing with the ongoing pandemic.
California health officials recently announced state-wide guidelines for major theme parks, giving them an idea of when they might reopen. Under the guidelines, the larger parks can reopen at limited capacity once their county has reached tier four, or the yellow tier, of California's COVID-19 economic reopening plan. That is the least restrictive tier and means that coronavirus spread in the county is minimal.
