New York will quickly open theme parks and summer time camps once more
In New York, amusement parks and arcades may reopen soon after months of COVID-19 closings.
Arcades and indoor entertainment can resume at 25% capacity from March 26, and outdoor theme parks can reopen at 33% capacity on April 9, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
Outdoor amusement parks in New York will reopen in April.
Social distancing and face-covering are required for all customers and employees, in addition to health screenings with temperature checks for all customers prior to entry, the guidelines say. All facilities must submit their reopening plans with health and safety protocols to their local health department.

“With the continued decline in infection and hospitalization rates, we have been able to take steps to begin recovery from COVID and we are excited to be in a place now to get our recreational industry going again with safety protocols.” Cuomo said in a statement.
Cuomo will also allow day and overnight camps to prepare for a summer reopening in New York state as coronavirus infections are reduced in Empire state. The Ministry of Health will publish guidelines for the reopening in the coming weeks.

According to Cuomo, outdoor amusement parks and indoor entertainment venues need to collect contact tracing information when necessary. High-touch areas like cars need frequent sanitizing during the day, and tickets should be sold in advance to avoid crowds and traffic jams, the guide says.
