Shanghai Disney was temporarily closed on Monday due to an increase in covid cases in China.
“We will continue to monitor the epidemic situation and consult with local authorities, and inform guests as soon as we have a definite resumption of our activities,” Park said in a statement to Fox 5.
Fox 5 NY reports:
Shanghai Disney says it will be temporarily closed to the public from Monday in response to another wave of COVID-19 cases that have spread across China.
The theme park said the closure would remain in effect until further notice, and would include the main resort, shopping complex Disneytown and Wishing Star Park, an amusement park.
Affected guests will be given a refund or exchange.
Shanghai Disney closed when China was facing its biggest COVID-19 outbreak since its initial outbreak in Wuhan in late 2019.
An outbreak of ‘major’ covid in China led to another lockdown last week.
There are still fewer cases than in 2020, but China is enforcing its “Zero Tolerance” rule for Covid.
China has locked up 51 million people in the northeastern province of Jilin and the southern cities of Shenzhen and Dongguan amid the Kovid outbreak.
According to the AP, China has mobilized its military to help control the new outbreak.
Germany also sounded the alarm last Monday, saying Kovid “has reached a critical level after the number of infections rose to record levels this week.”
