New California Theme Park Guidelines Coming Tuesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom Says…

He Clarifies No Widespread COVID Vaccine Until 2021

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that new guidelines on theme parks and team sports events are coming tomorrow.

“We are going to break up the theme parks,” the governor said in his COVID-19 and wildfires update this afternoon. “Not just one or two brands, it is many different parts of the theme park industry.”

Teasing out the results that Bob Iger and Jeff Shell have been seeking for months, Newsom said that the state’s Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly will reveal the new guidelines on Tuesday at noon PT.

Whatever form those procedures will take, Newsom said he remains “stubborn on a health-first data-driven process that is done with our eyes widen open … so we avoid any further increase in transmissions.”

Last week, Gnaly addressed the contentious theme park issue: “It will come out when we’re ready. We are working closely with our industry partners.” Ghaly continued: “We will continue to lead with public health and look at our data … slow and stringent, moving forward.”

The words and tone did not go down well with theme park owners that Deadline spoke with at the time. Disney and NBCUniversal, which run Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, respectively, did not respond to request for comment on today’s news.
