Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have temporarily closed to help quell the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

In a statement on the Tokyo Disney Resort website, Disney said, “As a precautionary measure in line with prevention efforts taking place across Japan and in response to the recommendations of appropriate authorities, we are temporarily closing Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea out of consideration for the health and safety of our guests and cast members from Feb. 29 to March 15. We remain in close contact with related government agencies about the situation.”

Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland have been closed indefinitely since mid-January.

The parks in Tokyo are scheduled to reopen on March 16 but further information will be announced at a later date, Disney said.

Earlier this month, Disney estimated two-month closures of the parks in Hong Kong and Shanghai could cost a combined $280 million in operating income.
