With the recent Coronavirus outbreak, Disney Parks have been taking additional precautions to protect guests, cast, and crew members.
Due to the Coronavirus exposure, The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco will be closing temporarily.
The museum has stated: “Given the continued spread of COVID-19 in the local area, and based on Mayor London Breed’s guidance from March 6, The Walt Disney Family Museum has decided to remain closed to undertake extensive due diligence efforts — in consultation with experienced professionals — regarding potential secondary exposure involving staff and volunteers.”
They are waiting to reopen until they receive clearance from medical professionals, or have waited two weeks from the time of closure. With these precautions in mind, the museum is projected to reopen on March 20th. All programs at The Walt Disney Family Museum during the two-week time period will be canceled or rescheduled for another date.
