COVID-19 closure: Shanghai Disneyland reopens after 3 months

SHANGHAI: Walt Disney Co. has reopened its Shanghai Disneyland after a three-month coronavirus shutdown.
The theme park in China’s most populous city is the first of the entertainment conglomerate’s six main Disney resorts around the world to reopen but does so under the shadow of the coronavirus.
It welcomed a capped number of visitors who had to pre-book tickets, have their temperatures checked on arrival, and show a government QR code designed to prove they are not a health risk.
Speakers on a recorded loop instructed people to wear masks at all times and reminded them to obey social distancing, including in queues and on rides.
Staff held signs instructing ‘please maintain a proper social distance from other guests’ and yellow lines and posters on the ground showed people where to stand when waiting.
According to Disney, there would be an increased frequency of sanitization and disinfection. The park will limit or suspend performances that often include the interaction between visitors and characters such as Mickey Mouse, the company stated.
