The global health crisis has upended the travel industry and resulted in the closure of Disney Parks globally during the spring. Although many parks have reopened (with some ultimately re-closing), Disneyland in Southern California remains closed.
Although Disneyland Resort did have the opportunity to open up some retail outlets and restaurants at Downtown Disney, as well as on Buena Vista Street in California Adventure, a recent stay-at-home order has put a limit on the capacity for stores, as well as a limit on restaurants to only offer take-out and to-go orders.
Although Orange County, where Disneyland resides, reported an all-time high of COVID-19 cases in one day last week, the state of California has now started to see a decline in daily new case numbers over five consecutive days, according to Deadline. The daily number of new cases has dropped 39.2% in less than a week.
State health officials previously said the new restrictions would probably show results within 2-3 weeks, and it seems that the drop in cases could indicate that the stricter measures are working to decrease the daily number of cases in California.
Two of the state’s regions are currently under the stay-at-home orders, including Orange County. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated!
