safely. if the if the number of cases does indeed state down, which we certainly hope it does. >> but i asked city officials that this had their blessing, the covid command center responded with a statement that reads, quote, public health officials are working with large outdoor events to create a plan for reopening consistent with state and local guidelines. we know that returning to environment in which people can safely gather will be an essential aspect to our economic recovery and are working closely with these partners to develop plans that allow us to reopen these events in a manner that minimizes risk one of the guidelines they're working on is capacity. one city official tells me whatever they plan will have to get a green light from the health department. first, maureen kelly kron 4 >> happening today. amc is reopening dozens of his locations. this includes several a los angeles riverside san bernardino ventura counties masks will be required and social distancing enforced all theaters are limit capacity. hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will be
