Shanghai Disney shuts down due to COVID

They were stuck in the not-so-happiest place on Earth.

Shanghai Disneyland abruptly shut down Monday due to COVID precautions — with guests still inside the theme park and unable to leave until they tested negative for the dreaded virus.

After expedited testing — with everyone tested negative — the unknown number of guests and workers were allowed to leave, a park spokesperson said.

Rides were kept in operation as guests waited to take tests.

The park said on its website that guests would be offered refunds and exchanges for their trouble.

The shutdown came after more than 20 asymptomatic cases were reported in Shanghai over the weekend, leading to lock-down and testing orders for about 1.3 million people in part of the city.

Shanghai has recorded 595 deaths from COVID, according to Johns Hopkins University.
