There was a suspected COVID-19 case at Hong Kong Disneyland and was closed today, Wednesday, November 17th. All Cast Members were required to take a COVID-19 test.
This is what was on the official Disney website:
Hong Kong Disneyland Park Temporary Closure on Nov 17 (Wed)
In an abundance of caution, Hong Kong Disneyland Park will be closed on Nov 17 (Wed) to ensure relevant Cast Members can complete the test sooner. Guests who planned to visit the park on Nov 17 are advised to visit on another day.
The government issued a compulsory testing notice requiring any persons who were present at the park at any time during the period from 11:00am to 6:00pm on Nov 14 (Sun) to undergo compulsory testing for COVID-19 on or before Nov 18 (Thu).
They closed in an abundance of caution to ensure that all Cast Members could get their test completed. Guess that had planned to visit are told they can visit another day. There is no word if there have been any positive cases or not.
So far, the Park is scheduled to reopen on Friday, November 19th. Currently, Hong Kong Disneyland operates five days a week and is closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays until December 15th. They will resume operating every day of the week on January 4th.
Shanghai Disneyland had a COVID-19 scare earlier this month and shut down on November 1st and 2nd.
Here in Central Florida, the rules are more relaxed but make sure to follow all of the safety guidelines that have been put into place. Face coverings are required in doors, and do your part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We’re so excited that the Parks have reopened after the lengthy shutdown last year and are ready to make so many new memories with friends and family.
