    Democrat imposed lockdowns are breaking under pressure from republican led states.





    Disneyland, MLB stadiums likely to open April 1 in California


    OAKLAND, Calif. — Disneyland can soon fling open its gates and outdoor concerts will once again play in California under new rules the state released on Friday.


    The changes will likely bring dormant theme parks, outdoor sporting events and concert venues back to life in most of the state starting April 1 — just in time for Major League Baseball's opening day — after a yearlong pandemic hiatus. Until now, the state had prohibited outdoor events with live audiences in most areas.


    “With disease rates coming down as they have, with the advent of vaccines and being able to increase the protection across our state through vaccinations, we felt like now was the appropriate time to reintroduce these activities in some fashion,” Health and Human Services Agency Secretary Mark Ghaly said during a press briefing Friday.


    The new rules will allow outdoor events to open at limited capacity in counties that are in the red tier, and will allow larger crowds as counties' case rates fall. Most counties are on track to have progressed to the red tier or beyond by April, thanks to declining case rates and changes unveiled earlier in the week that will allow counties such as Los Angeles and Orange to advance more quickly into the red tier.


    Under previous guidance, small theme parks could not start reopening in counties until they reached the second-least restrictive orange tier. And large theme parks like Disneyland weren't able to open until their counties were in the yellow zone under the old rules.


    The reopening momentum comes on the same week Gov. Gavin Newsom and state lawmakers approved a bill intended to spur California schools to bring students back. The governor's administration also agreed to allow youth basketball and other sports to resume indoors as part of a legal settlement, and Newsom's red tier rule changes will accelerate the opening of indoor gyms and restaurant dining in California.


    That has prompted skepticism — not just from Republicans but a leading county official — that Newsom is trying to ward off the recall threat looming over him. "Our futures are in the hands of a governor trying to stop a recall," Santa Clara County Executive Jeff Smith, who is also a physician, told POLITICO in an email Wednesday night.


    Smith and other Santa Clara leaders blocked the San Francisco 49ers from bringing back fans in November after the state said it was permissible, and he remains concerned about Newsom's similar reopening now.


    “The new news that the Governor will precipitously open up the highest risk, most dangerous activities only goes to show that his plan is an unwise reopening plan just like he had in May [2020]," Smith said Friday. "It is a very risky plan masquerading as an 'equity' plan that puts all of us at grave risk.”


    The background: The opening of larger venues, particularly theme parks, has been contentious, with operators frustrated with their status in the state’s reopening framework and inability to reopen. This has led to layoffs and furloughs in the theme park industry as the parks remained closed.


    Professional sports venues have been closed to fans, with a number of teams using cardboard to simulate fans in the audience.


    Erin Guerrero, executive director of the California Attractions and Parks Association, called Friday's announcement "encouraging news."


    "Parks now have a framework to safely and responsibly reopen," she said. "We appreciate the administration’s willingness to work with the state’s theme parks on the finer details of the plan so parks can responsibly reopen soon, putting people safely back to work and reinvigorating local economies.”

    Despite their states policies, residents of Alabama, Texas and Mississippi will still need to wear face masks if they want to step inside many ó but not all ó supermarkets and other large retail chains. Those retailers, which include Kroger, Target and Walgreens, cited guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in continuing to require masks and take other measures to protect workers and consumers from the virus.


    Good News for Mississippi

    Reopening has to do with CDC guildlines and Public Safety. Unlike some states
