Disneyland’s Reopening Could be Months Away Under California’s Reopening Guidelines
While we think it might be possible for Walt Disney World to reopen as early as this Summer, it’s looking like Disneyland’s reopening could be a little further down the line.
Just this week, California released guidelines to reopen the state. Unlike the federal recommendations made under “Opening Up America Again,” California has broken up their reopening strategy into four phases.
State 1 of California’s reopening strategy is keeping things the way they are currently. This includes: build out testing, more PPE, contact tracing, and hospital surge capacity. Workplaces where essential work is required need to made as sage as possible.
Just yesterday, the Mayor of Los Angeles announced that COVID-19 test would be made available for anyone who wants them.
Stage 2 of the reopening of California is focused around opening lower risk workplaces including retail, manufacturing, offices, and more public spaces. To make these workplaces safer, curbside pickup might be required for retail establishments for example.
Stage 3 of California’s reopening guidelines focuses on opening higher risk workplaces. These includes hair and nail salons, gyms, movie theaters, sports without live audiences, religious services, and weddings.
Stage 4 of California’s reopening guidelines is where Disneyland would fall into place unless an exception was made. This Stage would open high risk environments and venues such as concerts, convention centers, and sports arenas with live audiences.
This is where is gets tricky. If Disneyland was not permitted to reopen until Stage 4, it will be a little while. Stage 4 cannot begin until therapeutics have been developed. Would therapeutics be considered an anti-viral medicine like the much-talked about Remdevesir or would it mean a vaccine? Remdevesir could be approved by the FDA at any time but a vaccine is about 12 to 18 months away per officials.
It’s also important to note that Reopening Task Force for Orange County, FL – where most of Walt Disney World is located – has announced that it will be up to Disney to reopen at their own discretion? Will this be the same case for Disneyland? We will have to wait and see.
