Amusement parks in Japan have guidelines on visitors screaming. Japan's government asked companies to prepare for the "new normal" COVID-19 life. One guideline is no screaming on rollercoasters. Scientists say screaming or shouting increases the amount of virus put into the air. Talking quietly lowers the risk of spreading the virus. The new guidelines say visitors should not talk loudly or scream on all rides.

Japan's amusement parks are slowly reopening. Japan ended its coronavirus emergency this week. Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios Japan closed in early March. They have not made a date to reopen. Parks will have rules about masks and social distancing. "Ghosts...in haunted houses should [keep] a healthy distance from their 'victims'". Park staff dressed as mascots and superheroes should not shake hands or high-five anyone.
