Shanghai Disney Resort, which includes Shanghai Disneyland, shops and restaurants, will be closed indefinitely from Halloween due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We will notify customers as soon as we have a confirmed date to resume operations,” the park said in a statement Monday.

The two hotels in the complex will remain open.

Affected guests will be able to choose a visit date up to six months from the reopening of the park and resort or receive a refund.

The Shanghai Disney Resort has asked guests to present a negative nucleic acid test, which helps detect viruses and bacteria, up to 72 hours before entering the facilities. Guests who have traveled abroad within the last 10 days are not permitted in the resort.

Additionally, customers must wear masks indoors and outdoors, except when eating, social distancing and undergoing temperature checks.

Shanghai has recorded 97 COVID-19 cases in the past 28 days, and 64,282 cases in total, with 595 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University. Across China, there have been 178,178 cases and 212 deaths in the past four weeks.

Shanghai on Friday ordered large quantities of coronavirus tests for the 1.3 million people living in its Yangpu district and is ordering residents to stay at home, according to the Associated Press.
