The mayor must review the proposal. Then he will visit each site with his team. After the plan is OK’d, it will be sent to the governor, who gives the final go-ahead.

While the theme parks have remained closed, Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk have reopened within the past week with new safety procedures in place.
