BREAKING: Hong Kong Disneyland to Close Again Due to Slight Rise in COVID-19 Cases

UPDATE: An official closure date has now been issued by Disney. Hong Kong Disneyland will close temporarily starting July 15.

Just under a month after reopening, Hong Kong Disneyland has announced that it is closing due to another outbreak of COVID-19 after 52 new confirmed cases were recorded just today. Official details will be announced soon.

The park had reopened on June 18 to a grand ceremony and castle unveiling. As with all other Disney Parks reopenings, Hong Kong Disneyland reopened with limited capacity and increased health and safety measures. Since then, however, the government has shut down most entertainment venues and fitness centers, and restaurants can only do take-out after 6:00 PM, with only tables of up to four allowed before that time. Public gatherings must be limited to 50 people or less.

Hong Kong Disneyland was the second Disney park to reopen, and the first to close back down due to a second wave of COVID-19 cases.

Do you have an official source for this? That is not an official Disney twitter account and no official Disney account mentions this. The ONLY news stories on this cite to that tweet or this story so it sounds a bit fishy. Where did you confirm this?
