As California prepares to return to normalcy, new rules for theme parks have been implemented, including the prohibition of screams on roller coasters.
To avoid the spread of COVID-19, the California Attractions and Parks Association suggests that riders be encouraged to “mitigate the impact of shouting” on roller coasters, according to ABC7.
According to the blog, this can be accomplished by requiring face masks and changing the seating chart on rides as part of the association’s “responsible reopening strategy,” which was published in September.
According to ABC7, the recommendations also call on companies to restrict singing and yelling, two things that are thought to raise the risk of the virus spreading. According to the New York Post, the proposal would restrict groups to ten people from no more than three families, but indoor dining would be prohibited.
Parks have been closed for a year as a result of the pandemic. According to news, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park will reopen on April 30th. President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion relief package into law just a week ago, making it one of the biggest stimulus packages in US history. “This landmark law is about restoring the foundation of this country,” he said during the official signing.
The American Rescue Plan is a stimulus bill that authorizes a third round of one-time payments for most Americans. It also provides extra unemployment benefits to those who are currently unemployed, sets aside federal funds to help reopen schools, aids in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine doses, and assists cities and states that are experiencing budget problems.
