It seems the plans for COVID-19 closures at Disneyland Paris have been adjusted. While Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios closed March 14th, it was previously announced that the Disney Village shopping area and the Disney Hotels would remain in operation. Unfortunately, it seems the plans have changed.
According to DLPReport on Twitter, further restrictions by the French government necessitate the closure of Disney Village starting Sunday, March 15th. Furthermore, the Disney Hotels will close as soon as the final Guests check out. The reopening date, as with the theme parks, is tentatively set through the end of March.
Due to enhanced preventive measures by the French government, Disney Village will close as of the morning of Sunday March 15. Disney Hotels will also close as soon as the last remaining Guests have checked out. pic.twitter.com/iyTr02oyYd

Be sure to keep your eyes on a trusted global news source and check with your doctor if you feel any symptoms.

Travel to Europe, including France, is currently banned through mid-April by order of President Trump.
