The Walt Disney Company has announced the closure of the Disneyland Resort and California Adventure, its theme parks in Anaheim, California, because of the COVID-19 outbreak (Coronavirus).
According to a statement by the spokesperson for Disneyland Resort, the decision was in the best interest of guests and employees, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California’s executive order.
He went further to clarify that although no one has tested positive in the premises, it was a precautionary move to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure — two adjoining, but separately ticketed theme parks — will close on Saturday morning, March 14, through the end of the month. Disney’s hotels in Anaheim will remain open until Monday.
