CALIFORNIA—California theme parks may return to full capacity on Tuesday, June 15 and guests will no longer be required to adhere to social-distancing guidelines.

Each theme park may come up with its own social-distancing guidelines, mask mandates, and other guidelines to ensure the safety of visitors and employees. Some parks will only encourage wearing a mask, while others may still require masks. It is recommended to check the theme park’s website before visiting. 

The California Health Department is strongly recommending that venues, such as theme parks, require a vaccination card or a negative COVID-19 test, but neither will be required. If an individual at an outdoor event does not provide proof of vaccination, it is suggested that the venue asks the guest to wear a mask. 

The state strongly recommends that all guests be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test before visiting theme parks. 

These updated guidelines will remain in effect until October 1, 2021. The mandates will be reassessed at the beginning of September.
