Shanghai Disneyland Tourists Trapped Temporarily After COVID-19 Scare

Shanghai Disneyland has gone into a partial lockdown after a Female visitor last Saturday tested positive for COVID-19.

All 33,863 people who were at the park on Sunday were asked to stay for testing while new visitors were allowed on Monday.

Footage from the park has shown parkgoers being tested by government health officials wearing hazmat suits while fireworks explode in the background.

As of 8 am on Monday, all the 33,863 people were released after testing negative and were shuttled out of the park on shuttle buses after the subway line to the park from the city was locked down.

There were also no traces of COVID-19 that were found in inspected objects at the park.

Shanghai municipal government’s epidemic prevention and control task force has asked all the guests to undergo testing again after 24 hours and to self-monitor until Thursday.

Shanghai Disneyland announced that it will still be closed on Monday and Tuesday, and possibly even longer until Shanghai’s health authority gives the green light.
