TUCSON, Ariz. — Old Tucson announced its limited reopening, with a limited capacity.

According to the organization, hours will be 4 p.m.-9 p.m. Friday through Monday during Memorial Day weekend.

The 30-acre park will restrict its capacity to 300, and keep several buildings and attractions closed in order to keep social distancing and sanitation guidelines in place.

Old Tucson Film and Entertainment Production Manager Rob Jenson said "We're one of the first attractions in Pima County to reopen with all this going on, and we just want to make sure that people understand that we get that its not comfortable for everybody right now, but as people are ready, we will be here, so come out and see us."

Guests won't be required to wear masks, but they will be encouraged to bring their own protective equipment and be courteous to other guests.

Seating arrangements will establish six-feet social distancing minimums.

The park will also step up sanitation routines and will take the temperatures of employees before they begin their shifts.
