Yesterday, Inside the Magic reported that Disneyland has made the decision to delay their reopening for its theme parks — Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure — along with the Disneyland Resort hotels.
Once Disneyland made this announcement, California Governor Gavin Newsom expressed how much he appreciated Disney’s response to his concerns regarding reopening the theme parks. Spokesman Nathan Click stated, “The state and our public health experts continue to be in contact with the company and their workers — as well as other theme parks in the state — as we track and combat the spread of the virus.”
And now, according to a tweet from Natasha Chen with CNN, the California Governor is, once again, complimenting Disneyland on their decision to delay their reopening.
The tweet reads:
“California Gov. Gavin Newsom is publicly complimenting Disney on their decision to hold off on reopening Disneyland next month as planned: ‘This is an example of the data informing the decision making, and that is exactly what we need to be doing moving forward.'”
