I am showing the theme parks are closed even in counties in the "Minimal" lowest group. It looks like amusement parks are still a separate discussion.https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/https://spectrumnews1.com/ca/orange-county/business/2020/08/28/governor-s-new-reopening-plan-does-not-include-disneyland--knott-s-or-other-theme-parks

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, and other theme parks across the state will have to continue to wait for the governor’s guidance on when they can reopen.
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday announced a new process for reopening businesses across the state amid the coronavirus pandemic called Blueprint for a Safer Economy, but it did not include guidelines for theme park operators.

When asked by a reporter on when Disneyland and other theme parks can safely reopen, Newsom said amusement parks are a separate business category and that he’s working with theme park leaders on guidance.
“We are working with them,” Newsom said during a press conference. “We set our discussions aside on that. It is a very dynamic conversation, and so we didn't include it in the update today. That is a separate conversation.”
