Coronavirus continues to spread and cause fear and disruption across the country and around the globe. On the heels of announcements that multiple states are banning even some small gatherings of people, Disney announced that both its California parks — Disneyland Resort and Disney California Adventure — will close from now until at least the end of March.

This is the first time Disney parks have closed down since 9/11, and only the fourth time in the parks’ 65-year history that they’ve unexpectedly closed for any reason. In a statement, Disney officials said the two parks will close as of Saturday morning, and they’d keep Disneyland hotels open until Monday to give guests time to make new travel arrangements.
