Orange County Declares Local Health Emergency Due to Coronavirus Outbreak Concerns in California

Guests planning to visit the Disneyland Resort should be advised that California’s Orange County, home to the resort, has declared a local health emergency over the looming threat of coronavirus, according to the Los Angeles Times affiliate Daily Pilot.

The move comes as federal and state agencies have proposed to use a state-owned development center in Costa Mesa as a quarantine site. The county has supported the city’s efforts to prevent that from happening.

According to Orange County’s Health Care Agency, the county has had only one reported case of coronavirus; a man in his mid-50’s who has since recovered. The Health Care Agency’s website states: “There is no evidence of person-to-person transmission occurring here.” California had 15 confirmed cases as of Tuesday.

As of the writing of this article, there have been no announced plans to close the Disneyland Resort. Previously, the Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort have closed over the coronavirus outbreak, while the Tokyo Disney Resort and Walt Disney World have taken extra precautions to help ensure guest safety.
