On Sunday, Shanghai Disneyland had a Covid scare. The theme park locked down and forced more than 30,000 guests to undergo Covid testing after a recent guest tested positive for the virus.
A woman who visited the park on Saturday later tested positive for Covid in another province. To comply with contact tracing measures, park officials shut down the theme park and the metro station servicing the park.
China has a “zero tolerance” policy regarding Covid-19. According to the government’s data, no guests tested positive on Sunday. Shanghai Disneyland released a statement saying all Cast Members and third-party employees completed 2 NAT Covid tests within 48 hours and all are negative.
Shanghai Disneyland and Disneytown remain closed but will reopen November 3. Park officials are offering refunds or exchanges to any guests that were impacted by the closure.
