Gov. Newsom: Disneyland, Theaters, Casinos Exempted From Coronavirus Ban on Large Gathering

Disneyland is one of several properties exempt from California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order against large gatherings to counter the spread of COVID-19.

We first reported on the Governor’s announcement early this morning.

Newsom said California public health officials issued an updated policy saying “non-essential” gatherings such as sporting events, concerts and conferences should be postponed or canceled until at least the end of March.

At a news conference Thursday, Newsom said Disneyland and other large theme parks, theaters and casinos are exempted from his order against gatherings of 250 people or more due to coronavirus due to the “complexity of their unique circumstances”, but discussions remain ongoing.

Newsom said he spoke Wednesday with Disney’s executive chairman, Bob Iger, on the subject.
