LEGOLand California Press Release
Political leaders from North San Diego County came to together, along with LEGOLAND® California to call for safe and responsible business openings in light of COVID-19. After the new closure on July 12th, businesses have been greatly affected. Business sectors deemed “non-essential” by the state, have been required to close once again; leading to a collapse in revenues and a huge increase in people out of work. Businesses have come up with plans and proven their willingness to reopen in a safe and effective manner.
Today, North County leaders gathered at LEGOLAND and called for all businesses that were closed on July 12th to be reopened and additional businesses including, theme parks (LEGOLAND), libraries, invitation-only receptions and meeting rooms, street fairs and live music.
“Businesses are frustrated by a lack of support from the State of California,” said county Supervisor Jim Desmond. “We are seeing more and more businesses close permanently, we have to help San Diegan’s get back to work, before it’s too late.”
Many businesses have been forced to shut down for nearly six months, which has led to record high unemployment in San Diego County. In the North County, LEGOLAND has been closed since March 14.
“LEGOLAND is ready and eager to open once the state and county guidelines are given,” said LEGOLAND California Resort President Kurt Stocks. “All health and safety guidelines that have been approved for other San Diego attractions can easily be observed at our Park and our measures go above and beyond to keep our guests and employees safe.”
LEGOLAND, which employs up to 3,000 people in San Diego County, is one of the largest employers in North San Diego County.
“LEGOLAND is a wonderful regional partner that is the heart of tourism for Carlsbad,” said Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall. “We’ve seen other theme parks open in San Diego, it’s vital for our economy that we get LEGOLAND back open.”
