In a statement issued by CNN’s Natasha Chen, the governor cited that “This is an example of the data informing the decision making, and that is exactly what we need to be doing moving forward.”
The State of California has now indicated that it will not issue theme park reopening guidelines until sometime after July 4. Given the time required for Disney to bring thousands of Cast Members back to work and restart its theme park business, they had no choice but to delay the reopening of the theme parks and resort hotels until further approval is received from government officials.
This announcement comes after numerous petitions from Cast Members to hold off on the reopening. Work conditions for Disneyland Cast Members recalled to their positions were recently established and released.
