China COVID-19 spike: Shanghai Disney Resort shuts down temporarily
Shanghai: The Shanghai Disney Resort will be temporarily shut until further notice from Monday amid rising COVID-19 cases in China, media reports said.
"Due to the current pandemic situation, Shanghai Disney Resort, including Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown and Wishing Star Park will be temporarily closed from Monday, March 21, 2022," the statement issued on Sunday said as quoted by UNI.
"We will continue to monitor the pandemic situation and consult local authorities, and will notify guests as soon as we have a confirmed date to resume operations," it added.
