Amusement park fans rejoice. Under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan to reopen local businesses, a blueprint showcased a plan to accelerate the reopening of California amusement parks.
Once the county housing the theme park reaches Tier 4 the coinciding park will be allowed to reopen. (Ex. Six Flags in Santa Clarita, CA will reopen once LA County has reached tier 4). Additionally, small parks will be able to reopen once a minimum of tier 3 is reached.
In order for a county to reach a new tier status, their positive COVID results must remain in that tier for a minimum of 3 weeks. Once the record reflects constant results the county will be granted a new tier status.
“We don’t know when but we know how,” Dr. Mark Ghaly, CA State Secretary Health and Human Services Agency said.
Displayed by Disneyland employees strikes, these closures have caused an economic blow to the livelihoods of individuals employed by these companies. Therefore, the reopening of parks means the revitalization of financially deprived employees as well as an opportunity for CA’s thrill seekers to get a step toward normalcy.
