COVID-19 Reopening Guidelines from IAAPA

As many parks and attractions begin to reopen in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, IAAPA has offered some guidelines for operators that will help ensure safety among guests. Some topline considerations include:

  1. Allow healthy people to enjoy the facility and encourage the use of masks/face coverings for guests and staff.
  2. Provide means to wash/sanitize hands frequently.
  3. Manage density of people within the facility to keep people or family units that have been isolating together 6 feet (2 meters) apart. Physical distancing guidelines may vary by region and can be reduced by wearing of masks/ face coverings—ensure your plan is aligned with local official guidance.
  4. Reduce touch areas where possible and sanitize high touch surfaces frequently.
  5. Protect employees with various approaches, including barriers, protective coverings, and distancing.
  6. Communicate with employees and guests effectively on how to prevent the spread of germs.
  7. Have a plan in the event a guest or employee falls ill on site.
