Although Downtown Disney and Buena Vista Street are currently welcoming guests, Disneyland Resort remains closed for the foreseeable future as California continues to introduce further restrictions in response to the global health crisis.
Governor Gavin Newsom mandated a curfew for most counties last month, and more recently Los Angeles County introduced a safe-at-home order to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Governor Newsom announced that restrictions will become more severe depending on hospital capacities. Today, the Anaheim Union School District shared an update for schools that will remain in effect through next year.
The Anaheim Union School District, located in Orange County, announced that in-person schooling will not resume until March of 2021, as reported by the Orange County Register. This decision reflects the county’s record-setting new case rates. Orange County is currently considered to be in the “purple tier,” the highest risk level.
For schools to reopen, the county must remain in the “red tier” for at least two weeks before being able to welcome students in-person. As case numbers in Orange County continue to increase, it’s unclear when that condition will be met.
This school district is home to approximately 30,000 middle school and high school students and has decided that safety is their priority for their students and their community. It’s unclear how exactly these restrictions and case rates will impact Disneyland’s operations, but we’ll be sure to update you about any changes.
