An unidentified maintenance worker at Disneyland Paris tested positive for coronavirus, a spokesman for the theme park said on Monday.

But the theme park management said the resort, which receives around 15 million visitors a year on average, would remain open, and that hand sanitisers would be provided to visitors and guests of the park.

Disneyland said the infected person had worked behind the scenes and was not in contact with those who visited the park.

According to Le Parisien, a French daily, he was, however, taken to a hospital, where he is being treated while at least three colleagues who worked closely with him were ordered into quarantine.

“He is a night technician who is part of the Ride T1 team. The verdict fell around 8 p.m. Sunday. His colleagues are asked to stay in quarantine,” said Lucas Gheddab for the CFTC Disney.

Over 1,100 people have caught coronavirus in France with 19 deaths recorded so far.

Tokyo Disneyland was previously shutdown over fears of the disease in Japan, while the park in Shanghai was closed in January, 2020.

Walt Disneyland world in Florida said it was implementing preventive measures including easy access to hand sanitisers and clearly-defined cleaning routines.
