“We will be making announcements soon as it relates to theme parks and amusement parks,” Newsom said during a news conference Wednesday. “Making announcements soon as it relates to some areas, industries as well as sectors and putting out additional guidelines in those spaces very very shortly.”

According to the OC Register:

Newsom’s announcement comes in response to DisneylandLegoland California, the California Attractions and Parks Association and the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park and Garden Grove urging the state to issue COVID-19 guidelines that will let California theme parks reopen.

Newsom did not provide any time line for making an announcement that would allow Disneyland, Universal Studios and other theme parks to actually open.

“I’m not here today to make that presentation, but want folks to know we are actively working in a number of sectors and we’ll be making public the fruits of those negotiations and those efforts very very shortly,” Newsom said during the press conference.

Some California parks — such as Knott’s Berry Farm, SeaWorld San Diego and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom — have partially reopened for limited capacity events without rides.  Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood have reopened their adjacent outdoor shopping malls while keeping their theme parks closed. Six Flags Magic Mountain remains closed indefinitely while California’s Great America has canceled plans to reopen for the rest of 2020.
