Disneyland, other theme parks, Major League Baseball to open in California April 1

California officials will permit people to attend Major League Baseball games and other sporting events, as well as go to Disneyland and watch live performances in limited capacities, starting April 1.

Announced Friday, the rules coincide with baseball’s opening day. The San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics all have home games scheduled for April 1.

Theme parks will be allowed to open at 15% capacity in the red tier, the second-highest risk level, and only people who live in California can buy tickets. Pro sports are limited to 100 people in areas where the spread of the virus is higher.

The fight to open San Francisco schools reduced to desk spacing

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that in a letter from the local teachers’ union, district officials were requesting students be seated four feet apart — a distance that had previously been approved by the city’s health department — instead of six feet, which is recommended by the state health department when possible. The union says the district should be adhering to the state’s guidelines.
