California to allow MLB, theme parks, and live shows to resume at reduced capacity April 1

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California officials will allow people to attend Major League Baseball games and other outdoor sporting events, go to Disneyland and watch live performances in limited capacities starting April 1.

The rules announced Friday coincide with baseball’s opening day.

The San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics all have home games scheduled for April 1. California divides its counties into four color-coded tiers based on the spread of the coronavirus.

Attendance limits are based on what tier a county is in. Theme parks can open at 15% capacity in the tier that’s the second-highest risk level and only people who live in California can buy tickets.

The announcement comes as the Recall Gavin Newsom campaign crosses 1.9 million signatures.
