Am I surprised? Not really. I really didn’t think Newsom’s Team going to FL was going to change anyone’s mind in CA government’s ivory towers. It was just a tax payer’s funded expense. I don’t think Newsom or any officials gave an explanation as to why the COVID opening protocols in FL won’t work in CA.
If smaller theme parks can open at 25% or 500 capacity, I don’t get why larger theme parks and sporting arenas cannot open at the same capacity. Instead of “small” and “larger”, perhaps they can use square footage and assign a capacity. And Disney and Universal are much more capable of implementing COVID protocols consistently than a smaller park, I would think.
Right, we are CA. We do things the best.
Then again, Newsom has changed CA’s tiering a number of times. Who knows anymore.
I, too, really appreciated his approach in the early days. But as science and data have been collected and we know more, he has become more unreasonable.
