Reportedly, Disney (DIS) is scheduled to re-close its theme park in Hong Kong due to a rise in COVID-19 cases there. Hong Kong Disneyland reopened on June 18 and will now “temporarily” close again on July 15 after Hong Kong reported 52 new COVID-19 cases this week. Hotels at the Hong Kong theme park will continue to remain open.
Disney stated that the park has “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.”
Disney World in Florida reopened on July 11 at significantly reduced capacity and required all visitors to get their temperature taken at the gates and wear a mask inside. However, over the weekend, Florida reported a new single-day record of 15,299 new COVID-19 cases.
Disney’s business has been hit for more than three months as all of its theme parks remain closed globally, all of its cruise lines are halted, all of its Disney retail stores were shut, its cable subsidiaries ABC and ESPN have no live content, and it had to delay the release date of its live-action remake of “Mulan,” first from March 27 to July 24, then to Aug. 21.
