Disneyland Postpones Reopening Due To COVID Spikes

Los Angeles’s ABC News affiliate reports:

Disney on Wednesday announced it is postponing next month’s phased reopening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. The Anaheim theme parks, which have been closed since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, had planned to welcome back visitors on July 17, with enhanced health and safety measures in place.

However, the company decided to delay it because California officials indicated they won’t be issuing reopening guidelines for theme parks until after July 4, according to a statement on Disney’s Twitter account.

“Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials,” the statement read.
