Try not to scream on theme park rides, California trade group advises in COVID reopening plan

When visitors are finally allowed back at Disneyland, they might find the rides a little quieter.

The trade group California Attractions and Parks Association is recommending that theme park visitors should “limit activities that are known to cause increased spread” like singing, shouting, heavy breathing and raising one’s voice.
