Hong Kong Disneyland closed its doors today, after
being open for less than a month.
The decision is in line with prevention efforts
taking place across Hong Kong by the the government and health
authorities, after a recent spike in coronavirus cases in the city.
Hong Kong Disneyland only
re-opened on 18 June
after being closed in January.
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.
Hong Kong’s Centre for Health Protection said on
Monday that it is investigating 52 additional COVID19 cases, of
which 11 are imported and 41 locally transmitted. Of the local
cases, 21 are related to previous cases, while 20 are those with
unknown sources of infection.
“We are seeing more and more unknown local cases
without an identifiable source. So it is very possible that there
are a lot of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic cases in the
community,” said Communicable Disease Branch Head, Dr Chuang
Although the Standard Day Ticket at Hong Kong
Disneyland is valid for six months

hotel. Magic Access membership validity dates will
be extended based on the number of days the park is temporarily
