The state of California has set strict guidelines for reopening Disneyland and other large theme parks in the coming months.
California’s director of health and human services, Dr. Mark Ghaly, announced on Tuesday at a news conference that large California theme parks will be able to open at 25% capacity when their counties reach the lowest, yellow, tier under the color-coded reopening system for counties, based on coronavirus prevalence and testing rates.
The yellow tier, or minimal designation, is assigned when daily new cases are under 1 per 100,000, and positive testing for COVID-19 is under 2%. Orange County, home to Disneyland, is currently in the red or substantial tier — meaning daily new cases are between 4 and 7 per 100,000, and positive testing for COVID-19 is between 4% and 7%.
