After closing for a second time on July 15 due to a spike in COVID-19, Hong Kong Disneyland may soon be reopening, with the government set to announce next Friday whether the resort will be allowed to resume operations, pending on how the epidemic progresses within the region.
The resort issued the following statement regarding the reopening:
We welcome the government’s announcement to gradually relax the health and safety measures. Our reopening plan will follow the health authorities’ guidelines in a measured manner.
According to the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong will be relaxing social-distancing rules for restaurants, sports facilities, and public gatherings starting Friday, with four people now allowed per table in restaurants, up from a cap of two. The government is also in talks with various other countries, like France and Japan, to establish “travel bubbles” in order to resume travel between these countries.
Venues such as theme parks may be allowed to reopen next week, however Hong Kong Disneyland has not yet stated an official reopening date, but we expect the announcement to be made soon.
