Hong Kong’s Disneyland theme park said on Monday it will reopen on June 18 to a reduced number of visitors and with enhanced health measures after the novel coronavirus outbreak forced it to close in late January.

The Chinese-ruled city has reported only a handful of new cases recently, with its total so far standing at 1,110 infections and 4 deaths.

The majority of the park’s shopping and dining locations will restart operations with “controlled capacity,” while social distancing measures will be implemented in queues, restaurants and other facilities. Hotel services will also resume gradually.

Disinfection will be carried out more frequently and hand sanitisers will be made available for visitors, who will be required to go through temperature screening and wear a face mask. A health declaration will be required as part of the reservation process.

Hong Kong’s Disneyland resort is owned by a joint venture, Hongkong International Theme Parks Ltd, of which the local government owns 53 per cent and Walt Disney Co holds the rest.

Ocean Park, the city’s other theme park, reopened on Saturday after lawmakers approved a HK dollars 5.4 billion (Rs 52,95,66,06,600) bailout plan last month to keep it running for another year.
