Disneyland Paris has been reopened for over a month now. But a new report states that two Disneyland Paris Resort Cast Members are confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19.
The European amusement park site Looopings reports that two Disneyland Paris Cast Members recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The Cast Members were a part of the Jungle Book Jive show, which was originally set to debut at Disneyland Paris on August 22. However, the Cast Members and their fellow performers are now quarantined at their homes for 14 days, and the premiere of the Jungle Book Jive show has been delayed.
Below are the details translated from the Looopings article:
Two cast members have tested positive for the corona virus, a Disney spokesperson confirms to Looopings. They are now at home. As a precaution, their immediate colleagues must also be in home quarantine. Disneyland saw no other option than to suspend production.
In a response, Disney says that all health and safety measures for guests and employees have been carefully followed. The postponement would be necessary to put on a show that meets Disney’s high standards, the information officer said.
