California Governor States Mass Gatherings “Unlikely” Through August, Disneyland Summer Reopening in Jeopardy

With summer quickly upon us, many eager Disneyland Resort guests and Annual Passholders are searching for answers regarding when the parks will reopen, but it seems California Governor Gavin Newsom is putting a lid on any potential summer reopenings. During a press conference today, the governor stated that the chances of mass gatherings of any kind taking place are low. Without a vaccine in place, the prospect of allowing such gatherings would be considered negligible at best.

 

Along with restricting mass gatherings, the governor outlined a plan comprising of six parameters that are needed before the state can lift any stay-at-home orders and other COVID-19 interventions:

1. A widespread expansion of coronavirus testing;
2. “Vigilant” protection of California’s most vulnerable residents;
3. Focus on hospital care infrastructure and personal protective equipment, or PPE;
4. Engage researchers in academia, incuding the University of California, and at health and technology companies on the front lines of the pandemic;
5. “Redraw floor plans” at business locations with physical distancing in mind;
6. Determining when to re-institute certain measures, such as stay-at-home orders.

Disneyland Resort remains closed, along with the rest of the Disney Parks, “until further notice.” In a recent interview with Barron’s, former Disney CEO Bob Iger commented on the possibility of temperature checks for guests, but no confirmation of this being implemented at the other Disney Parks (besides Shanghai Disney Resort) has been issued.

Gavin Newsom is an idiot. It’s likely that this was spreading for months in California before any of these shutdowns took place. Now he’s going to continue strangling the economy after the worst of it is over.

You’re right – America should’ve had stricter shut downs sooner than it did.

Wouldn’t have mattered because it was circulating in China back in 2019.

Things and places like Disney need to reopen soon cause there are cast members and employees that need to work so they can live and pay their bills, mortgages, etc. . . Gavin Newsom and the other government people working on this are just plain idiots. There’s going to be riots and huge protests if places like Disney don’t open, or things change before Summer. The whole tourism, entertainment industry, and economy will all go down hill.
