Hong Kong Disneyland prepares for reopening amid improving epidemic situation
The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is preparing to reopen in light of the improving COVID-19 pandemic situation in Hong Kong, the theme park told Xinhua Wednesday.
The Hong Kong Disneyland has been closed since Jan. 26 to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak. All six Disney theme parks around the world had been closed due to the epidemic.
A spokesperson of the theme park said the park will monitor the epidemic situation closely, follow the guidance from the health department, and take epidemic-prevention measures to guarantee the health of visitors and staff upon reopening.
"We will later inform the public of the specific reopening date and measures to be taken," the spokesperson said.
The Hong Kong Ocean Park, another theme park which was forced to close in January due to the epidemic, also announced recently that it was preparing to reopen within a few weeks.
The Shanghai Disneyland reopened on May 11, becoming the first among six Disney theme parks worldwide to welcome visitors again since the outbreak of the COVID-19.
