Before letting California theme parks reopen, Newsom is looking out of state

Andrew Noymer, associate professor of population health and disease prevention at UC Irvine, said he believes it is possible to reopen the theme parks in California by imposing some major changes to the way they operate. But he added that he doesn’t see any harm in waiting until the governor’s representatives investigate the conditions at other parks. “If he is sincere that he wants the information, I don’t see any harm,” he said. “It sounds reasonable to me.”
