Disney is delaying the opening of its parks in southern California until state officials release tips on how theme parks can make visitors come back, Walt Disney's company said Wednesday.

The company planned to open Disneyland and California adventure parks on July 17. These discoveries and plans for opening resort hotels are postponed indefinitely.

Disney added that a new opening date would not be announced without state approval.

“The state of California has now indicated that it will not issue guidelines for opening a theme park until July 4,” the statement said.

Two Disney parks in Anaheim, California, have been closed since mid-March.

The plan to open the Downtown Disney Mall on July 9 will remain valid.

At the international level, the company has already opened hotel complexes in Hong Kong and Shanghai. The company also plans to open its Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida on July 11th.

The closure of two parks was announced on Wednesday as the state increased the number of new cases of COVID-19, including 7,149 new cases confirmed on Tuesday.

Concerns over the opening of the park during the pandemic were also raised by park staff.

In an open letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom, a union group representing some 17,000 workers in the park expressed concern about Disney's initial plans for reopening in July.

“Although Disney provided information and responded to some of our concerns, such as the need for the company to take into account the temperature of all players entering the site, Disney has not yet answered many security questions, including a serious discussion of“ testing, ”which has become the cornerstone plans to open up other sectors of the entertainment industry, ”says the Coalition Resort Union, dated June 17.

Disney said on Wednesday it was working with its unions and signed agreements with 20 affiliates representing at least 11,000 workers.

Meanwhile, a Newsom spokesperson told The Orange County Register that his office had contacted Disney and its theme park employees.

Newsom public relations director Nathan Click said “the governor appreciates Disney’s responsiveness to fears of renewal amid the recent increase in COVID-19 infections in many southern California counties.” ,
