Disneyland postpones its reopening date




Earlier this month, Disneyland had announced July 17 to be its reopening date after its closure following the outbreak of novel coronavirus. But, according to the latest updates, Disneyland has delayed its reopening because the company hasn’t heard from the government officials, lately. 

In a statement confirming the move, Disneyland said, “Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials. Once we have a clearer understanding of when guidelines will be released, we expect to be able to communicate a reopening date.”

Well, this is the first time in 65 years when the park has been closed for more than a day. It was last closed for a day on September 11, 2001, in the wake of a terror attack. 

Meanwhile, some of the employees seemed unhappy with the earlier news of Disneyland’s reopening citing the safety and precautionary measures in the light of COVID-19. In the statement, Disneyland also mentioned about negotiating with its union to help return their employees to work and reiterated, “We have had positive discussions and are very pleased to have signed agreements from 20 union affiliates, including the Master Services Council, which represents more than 11,000 of our cast members. The signed agreement details plans that include enhanced safety protocols that will allow us to responsibly reopen, and get thousands of our cast members back to work.”

Disneyland was closed in the month of March after the California Gov Gavin Newsom’s executive order regarding the gathering of more than 250 people. Well, countries across the world had been in its lockdown period where shops, malls, and even offices were being operated virtually, just to put a stop at the rapid spread of coronavirus.
