Disneyland Hong Kong will be temporarily closing its doors again as a result of a spike on Coronavirus cases in Hong Kong.
The park had reopened at limited capacity less than a month ago after closing in January during the first surge of Covid-19 cases.
During the reopening guests and staff were required to wear face masks, social distance, and had to have their temperature checked before entering the park.
It seems due to the spike in cases Hong Kong’s government decided to limit group gathering to four people from 50.
Also twelve different types of businesses, including gyms and gaming centers, are being forced to shutdown for a week and restaurants will only be allowed to give out takeaway after 6:00 pm.
Statement from Disney in regards to the closing:
“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 adjusted levels 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.”
