California to let Major League Baseball, Disneyland reopen

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 05 Mar, 2021 11:08 PM
  • California to let Major League Baseball, Disneyland reopen

California officials are allowing people to attend Major League Baseball games and other sports, go to Disneyland and watch live performances in limited capacities starting April 1.

The rules announced Friday coincide with baseball’s opening day. The San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics all have home games scheduled for April 1.

California divides its counties into four colour-coded tiers based on the spread of the coronavirus. Attendance limits are based on what tier a county is in.

Theme parks will be allowed to open at 15% capacity in the red tier, the second-highest risk level, and only people who live in California can buy tickets.

Pro sports are limited to 100 people in areas where the spread of the virus is higher.
