Although most of Disneyland Resort remains closed, there are some parts of the resort that have reopened.
But there’s a chance that both could soon be forced to close again. California Governor Newson recently announced that regional stay-at-home orders would be imposed for any region where ICU capacity falls below 15%. Yesterday, the City of Anaheim tweeted that Southern California has now dropped below 15% ICU availability.
Southern California has dropped below 15% ICU availability. If we stay below on Saturday, it will trigger the state's new regional stay-at-home order for Orange County and Anaheim, effective Sunday. See https://t.co/7mhv2Bmq2n for more. pic.twitter.com/LVVqhb2aqh

If Southern California falls under the stay at home order, it would greatly limit activities deemed as nonessential. This includes bars, wineries, personal services, and more. Retail outlets can remain open, but would only be able to operate at 20% capacity. Restaurants will be allowed to open ONLY for takeout and delivery.
This could affect those businesses at Disneyland Resort that have reopened. It might not close down everything at Downtown Disney and on Buena Vista Street, but it would hamper business for the two locations. Most recently, the Grand Californian Resort at Disneyland canceled plans to reopen this month to DVC members due to the new stay at home order.
