Theme park industry leaders in California say they aren't pleased with proposed reopening guidance being considered by Gov. Gavin Newsom's administration. Erin Guerrero, executive director of the California Attractions and Parks Association, said amusement park leaders wanted changes to a draft they reviewed on Thursday, Oct. 1, and asked Newsom to continue conversations with industry leaders before finalizing the rules.

Disneyland in Southern California has officially transformed into a “vaccination super-site”.
Orange County health officials say about 10,000 people registered for an appointment to get the COVID-19 shot as soon as spots opened up on the first day.
The Anaheim theme park has been closed since March because of the pandemic. Other mass-vaccination sites have opened or will soon open in other parts of California as well, including Dodger Stadium in L.A., San Diego’s Petco Park, and Sacramento’s Cal Expo.
