PENNSYLVANIA (WBEN) – Gov. Tom Wolf announced Wednesday that indoor entertainment centers and outdoor amusement parks in Pennsylvania can reopen at reduced capacity in March and April, respectively, and that overnight summer camps can plan to reopen in June.
Indoor family entertainment centers can reopen on March 26. They can reopen at 25% capacity with face coverings, social distancing and temperature checks in place. Frequent cleaning and disinfection will also be required.
Attractions must remain closed if riders can’t socially distance on them or if the attractions can’t be cleaned regularly.
Outdoor amusement parks can reopen April 9. They can reopen at 33% capacity with face coverings, social distancing and temperature checks in place. Frequent cleaning and disinfection will also be required. Tickets must be sold in advance and entry and exit times must be staggered.
Overnight summer camps can also plan to reopen in June, Wolf said. Testing protocols will be required at the camps.
“That doesn’t happen until June, and we hope the current trajectory stays until June,” the governor said.
Wolf said the Department of Health will list the guidelines for the reopenings.
Wolf also announced that there were another 12 cases of the highly contagious U.K. coronavirus variant in the state, including 11 in Philadelphia, since Saturday.
