California’s theme parks, including Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, have been given the green light to return to full capacity beginning June 15, when the state plans to lift the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and fully reopen.
According to the Department of Health’s revised COVID-19 guidelines, theme parks, sporting events, concerts, music or food festivals, car shows, marathons and parades are considered “mega events”, or outdoor events with more than 10,000 people. Also falling under the “mega events” category are indoor events with more than 5,000 attendees, including conventions, conferences, expos, sporting events and concerts.

The agency is strongly recommending that all outdoor “mega events” verify that their attendees are either fully vaccinated or can confirm a pre-entry negative test result. However, attendees who do not verify vaccination status will still be allowed to enter, though they will be encouraged to wear face coverings. Venues are required to make masks available for all attendees.
