Hong Kong Disneyland has confirmed temporarily closure just a month after reopening.

The theme park will shut again from tomorrow (Wednesday) due to a new Covid-19 outbreak in the city.

Entertainments giant Disney reopened the Hong Kong park on June 18 following closure at the end of January due to the spread of the pandemic across Asia.

The company said: “As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland will temporarily close from July 15.

“The resort hotels will remain open with adjusted level of services. Enhanced health and safety measures that reflect the guidance of health and government authorities have been put in place, such as social distancing measures and increased cleaning and sanitisation.

“We are in contact with health authorities and the government about the situation.”

Hong Kong Disneyland was the second Disney park to reopen, following Shanghai Disneyland in May.

Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom reopened in Florida last week with enhanced sanitisation measures and limited capacity.

Its Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are due to reopen on Wednesday.

The entertainment company owns a 47% stake in the Hong Kong theme park, with a government entity holding the remaining portion.
