What’s going on:
- Legoland announced it plans to reopen its theme park on July 1.
- The park has remained closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has left more than 100,000 people dead across the country.
- Per The Orange County Register, Legoland and SeaWorld San Diego were supposed to meet with San Diego health officials to discuss the reopen dates. SeaWorld did not release a target opening date.
- The park will reportedly reopen with health and safety guidelines in place, which has been the case with other businesses reopening during the pandemic.
What does it mean for Disneyland?
- Universal Studios Hollywood
- Knott’s Berry Farm
- Six Flags Magic Mountain
- SeaWorld San Diego
- Legoland California
The parks have been closed since mid-March, which is when they shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic.
- “Theme parks are slated to open in stage 3 if the rate of spread of COVID-19 and hospitalizations remain stable,” California Health and Human Services Agency spokesperson Kate Folmar told The Orange Register. “The science and data of how COVID-19 hospitalizations are progressing, how prepared hospitals are for increased cases and whether hospitals have adequate personal protective equipment will guide when the state enters stage 3.”
Disneyland plans for reopening are expected soon.
