Hong Kong Disneyland Closing Once Again After Another COVID-19 Outbreak In China
Just weeks after reopening, Hong Kong Disneyland will close once again. The park was reopened to the public on June 18, but on Monday the park announced it would close for a second time on July 15th, due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
“As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland park will temporarily close from July 15. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open with an adjusted level of services. They have put in place enhanced health and safety measures that reflect the guidance of health and government authorities, such as social distancing measures and increased cleaning and sanitization. We are in contact with health authorities and the government about the situation.” a Disney spokesperson said.
The closure comes after reports of a new outbreak of COVID-19 cases. Hong Kong announced social distancing rules that limits gatherings previously capped at 50, to now no more than 4 — and dine-in services at restaurants will be banned after 6pm. Hong Kong authorities also announced that schools and movie theaters must shut down amid the surge of cases.
This is a devastating signal to the U.S. as they have been looking to Hong Kong, as well as mainland China, to forecast how and when to safely reopen venues around the world.
