    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Alcatraz, the infamous former island prison off San Francisco, will reopen its outdoor areas to the public next week after being closed for five months because of the pandemic.

Reopening for a Knott’s-designed food event dubbed Taste of Calico, the park‘s famed ghost town was clear for roaming on an early Friday afternoon. And though there was an air of trepidation among the guests seeking boysenberry-fueled delectables, maintaining at least 10 or 15 feet distance from another human was relatively easy — just the way this pandemic-wary mind likes it. Western characters traversed the second story of the ghost town’s frontier buildings, keeping alive from a distance the theme park’s pre-pandemic tomfoolery — including the shock and concern expressed at the very sight of any piece of modern technology held by a guest....
    SALISBURY (CBS) — In summers past the dings, bells, and flashing lights of Joe’s Playland would also be accompanied by the sounds of laughing children. This year, the hundred-year-old arcade in Salisbury still has not opened amid the pandemic. “I mean, financially it’s devastating. This is our summer season and we make 70% of our revenue in the summer,” co-owner Dan Abdulla said.

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens Williamsburg will not reopen next week when Virginia further eases restrictions on businesses and public gatherings put in place earlier this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
