Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Blueprint Refresh” allows Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain and other theme parks in the state to reopen as soon as April 1, if the counties they are located in are in at least the second, or red tier.
Previously, these theme parks were able to reopen only when the counties reached the least restrictive tier, or the yellow tier.
Many state counties, including Orange, have been in the most restrictive purple tier since Gov. Newsom lifted the statewide lockdown in January.
The county has been posting declining coronavirus metrics in recent weeks and could enter the red tier as soon as this week, with a tier update slated for Tuesday.
