Now that Disneyland has submitted its proposed reopening dates and parts of Universal CityWalk in Hollywood have already begun to reopen, Califonia’s phased reopening plan seems to be chuggin’ along.
Stage 3 of Governor Newsom’s plan will go into effect this Friday which will means that more locations and businesses will receive the green light to reopen.
While Newsom’s plan has four stages, most of the state entered stage two in May. California’s reopening has been more gradual than other parts of the country and Newsom says counties still have the option of moving forward slower than the rest of the state if they choose to do so.
Dine-in restaurants, houses of worship, hair salons, and non-essential retail stores were allowed to reopen last month at each counties’ discretion. Once stage 3 begins on Friday, the following locations may resume assuming all health guidelines and necessary safety precautions (limited capacity, social distancing, increased sanitation) are implemented:
- Day Camps
- Professional Sports
For schools and day camps, only counties that are below the threshold of cases will be permitted to reopen (which almost every county meets). The state will provide further guidance (including rules) on how hotels, casinos, museums, zoos, and aquariums can safely operate as well as the filming of television and movie productions and recording of music can resume.
Since California officials have stated Disneyland will be allowed to reopen in stage three, we’re eager to see if the proposed dates are finalized soon.
