The happiest place on earth may be happier than expected when it reopens in April.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday that the state is close to achieving its goal of vaccinating 2 million California residents in disadvantaged communities. This teacher, according to The new system From the state, it relaxes the requirements to move from the more restrictive purple levels of the ruler’s reopening plan to lower levels. Moreover, Newsom announced last week that the theme parks – with very limited capacity – could reopen on April 1.
Did not matter Orange County, althoug. Officials there say they are on their way to reaching the red level by March 17th. “We expect Orange County to open at the red level next week,” said Frank Kim, Chief Executive Officer of Orange County.
Los Angeles and Orange counties could reopen movie theaters and theme parks this weekend, Newsom announced
Dr. Clayton Chow, chief health official and director of the Orange County Health Care Agency, told reporters on Wednesday that the Health Department “expects (s) to have two weeks at the red level on Tuesday and on Wednesday we will have an official entry at the red level.”
The county has a credit for meeting the red level metrics for a week already, and if the district continues to do so from Sunday, it will be eligible to graduate through to the red level. (The state of California requires that counties be at a new level for two consecutive weeks before it can implement protocols to reopen that layer.) The level is announced Tuesday.
Kim said the lower-level thresholds launched by meeting the goal of Newsom’s vaccination program, would help Orange County graduate to the orange level even sooner than expected.
This is important for parks in a county like Disneyland And Knott’s Berry Farm. In the red layer, it can be reopened with 15% capacity, without eating inside or outside guests. Indoor capacity is also max 15%.
But at the orange level, the gardens graduated to 25% capacity, a 2/3 increase in attendance that’s likely been music to the ears of locals locked indoors over the past year. Indoor capacity is also 25% orange, according to most recent California Layering Diagram.
Zhao agreed with Kim’s prediction, but indicated that once Orange County reached the red level, it would have to stay in place for at least three weeks.
“It will be easier for us to go to the orange level,” said Zhao. While county numbers may qualify them earlier, Zhao said, “The earliest time we can reach the orange level will be after the first week of April.” That’s because boycotts have to stay in a class for 3 weeks before moving to another class.
This early April window is important because Disney CEO Bob Chapik He said this week Disneyland will reopen in “late April”. If this is the case and Orange County officials’ predictions are correct, the park will be able to reopen not at 15% capacity, but at 25%.
The county’s test positivity rate improved to 3.2% from 3.9% last Tuesday, the average case-adjusted rate per 100,000 people improved in an average of seven days with a seven-day lag from 7.6 to 6. The district’s quarterly health equality rate, which measures positivity has improved. In hotspots in disadvantaged communities from 4.9% last week to 4.1%.
The county is on the red level with case rates per 100,000 cases and in the orange level the rates of positivity. To reach the red level, the county must have a case rate per 100,000 inhabitants from 4 to 7, a positive rate from 5% to 8% and a quarterly rate of health equity from 5.3% to 8%. To reach orange, the condition rate must be less than 4 per 100,000.
The red layer allows many companies and institutions to reopen. For example, retail stores can allow half capacity instead of 25%, museums, zoos and aquariums can reopen for indoor activities with 25% capacity, as well as cinemas, gyms and restaurants.
