The San Diego Tourism Authority has released an Attractions Re-Opening Plan for theme parks and attraction sites located in California, including SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California and more.

The reopening plan is designed to enable attraction sites to reopen in stage three instead of stage four. Stage three is expected to be several months away, while stage four states a park cannot reopen until a coronavirus treatment becomes available.

The purpose of the plan is to help sites reopen safely, prioritising the safety and wellbeing of employees and visitors.

The reopening plan stipulates that all employees will have their temperature checked prior to starting work. Training sessions will also be put on to inform members of staff on how they can keep themselves and visitors safe.

Homeworking will also be encouraged for employees that do not have to work on site. All staff and visitors will also be made to wear face masks when entering the attraction site.

Six feet social distancing measures will also be in place for all activities, including queues, bag check inspections, park entry, rides, restrooms, hand wash stations and more.

Signage will be put up throughout sites to encourage visitors to adhere to social distancing rules.

Hand sanitising stations will be installed at different locations throughout theme parks and other attraction sites.
