Hong Kong Disneyland closed once again on July 15 due to the rising COVID-19 cases in the city, the Walt Disney Company said.
Hong Kong recorded 52 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on July 13, a new high since the pandemic re-emergence, including 41 local infections, according to local health authorities.
Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open with enhanced health and safety measures in place.
The theme park reopened less than a month ago after closing in January over the COVID-19 pandemic. Guests and staff were required to wear face masks, practice social distancing and have temperature checked upon entry.
Apart from its Disneyland park, Hong Kong’s Ocean Park is also seeing a temporary closure. As the announcement on its official website says, the park will cease operation from July 14 to 21 to help curb the COVID-19 pandemic with all reservations during the period cancelled.
