There are rules to reopen Californian theme parks

All theme parks in California, the US, have to be in the state’s yellow zone to be able to re-open. Amongst the affected parks by new rules are Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood. That, however, may take a long wait due to the number of people ill with a C-virus. For instance, the Disneyland in Anaheim is closed since March 2020.

In those zones of colors of a C-virus, there are also purple and red – the most restrictive ones. The mentioned Disneyland is in the red zone now, whilst Universal Studios Hollywood is in purple. To reach the yellow zone, there must be 1 or fewer new cases of infection per 100,000 of the population per day. So, how much time will that approximately take to reach the yellow? That can be months or even years. In the worst-case scenario, buildings and facilities will start to dilapidate and other months will be needed to restore them to make sure their physical safety (in addition to viral safety). That would definitely require some investments for companies running those theme parks.

What counties in California have already reached the yellow zone? San Francisco is now the only but the secretary of Californian Health and Human Services Agency, Dr. Mark Ghaly says they will be working to reopen counties one by one. Ken Potrock, Disneyland Resort’s president, says in his turn that the issued guidelines for zoning do not work and they are highly arbitrary.
