SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KER) — California theme parks could also re-open sooner if the state legislature approves a new proposal.
Currently, facilities like Disneyland, Universal, and Six Flags can only open when their counties are in the Yellow Tier.
The new plan is from Assemblywomen Suzette Valladeres and Sharon Quirk-Silva. It would treat theme parks like smaller venues allowing them to open in the Orange Tier.
That means they could operate amid a moderate spread of COVID-19.
