Disneyland And California Theme Parks Push For Reopening
Los Angeles, Sept 15 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Sep, 2020 ) :Disneyland, Universal Studios and other theme parks have called on California officials to set out the health criteria required for them to reopen, warning that tens of thousands of jobs are at stake.
Six months after some 30 amusement parks closed "voluntarily in response to COVID," the California Parks and Attractions Association said it had created robust measures to protect visitors and staff, but guidance from the state "has not been forthcoming." "California's amusement parks urge the Governor to issue amusement park guidelines expeditiously so these vital community attractions can reopen their doors," said executive director Erin Guerrero in a statement to AFP on Tuesday.
Guerrero warned that "hundreds of millions of tax revenue" have been lost and many nearby local businesses had closed permanently.
"As evidenced by the many open amusement parks in the United States and around the world, visiting an attraction will not look the same as before COVID, but California's amusement parks are ready to responsibly reopen," said Guerrero.
