Disney parks to stay closed indefinitely

The Walt Disney Company has finally confirmed the extended closure of parks in California and Florida.

Disney originally closed its parks until the end of this month, but now says the closure is indefinite.

The company had been criticized in recent days for a lack of clarity over plans for April and beyond, even as it was clear reopening would likely be blocked in both states.

"While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remains The Walt Disney Company's top priority," Disney said in a statement.

It has been paying hourly cast members since the closure and will continue to do so until mid-April.

Disney has begun reopening some shops and restaurants at Shanghai Disneyland, although the main park is still shuttered.

Disney parks in Hong Kong and Japan also remain closed.
