Indoor Family Entertainment Centers and Outdoor Amusement Parks Given Green Light to Reopen in the Coming Weeks
Yesterday Governor Cuomo announced that indoor family entertainment centers can open on March 26th at 25% capacity, and outdoor amusement parks will be able to open on April 9th, at 33% capacity. All venues will have to adhere to the following protocols:
  • Require face coverings, social distancing and mandatory temperature checks/health screening;
  • Contact information must be collected from each party in the event that contact tracing is required;
  • High-touch areas, attractions, and rides must be cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout the day;
  • Attractions must close if they cannot ensure distancing and be frequently cleaned/disinfected;
  • Sufficient staff must be deployed to enforce compliance with rules, including capacity, distancing and face coverings;
  • Tickets should be sold in advance, and entry/exit and waiting times should be staggered to avoid congestion;
  • Indoor areas must meet enhanced air filtration, ventilation and purification standards;
  • On premises retail, food services and recreational activities must abide by all State-issued guidance.

All indoor family entertainment centers and outdoor amusement parks must submit their reopening plans to the local health department for review and approval prior to reopening.

The Governor also announced that overnight summer camp reopening guidance will be forthcoming from the NYS Department of Health in the coming weeks. We will share that information when it becomes available.
