Disneyland Paris will again close its doors due to spiking coronavirus cases across Europe. The European park, which reopened July 15th this year, will close to the public again on October 30th as part of sweeping new restrictions enacted by French President Emmanuel Macron in an effort to regain control of increasing coronavirus cases in France.
New French restrictions will see the forced closure of restaurants and bars across the country. French residents will be allowed to leave home only for essential travel or medical reasons. French schools and manufacturing will remain open. The new restrictions are expected to be lifted no earlier than the middle of December.
Similar restrictions have recently been enacted elsewhere in Europe including the Republic of Ireland, which has enacted regulations preventing people from traveling farther than 5km from their homes. France reported its single highest daily infection count of approximately 52,000 new cases just this week.
