Kangwon Land announced last Friday that it would remain closed until March 9 over concerns about the spread of Covid-19 infection in South Korea.
Kangwon Land originally suspended operations on February 23, but the period of closure has been repeatedly extended as the Covid-19 information became increasingly dire. As of Sunday evening, there were 3,526 confirmed cases in the country and 17 confirmed deaths.
The company is expected to take a serious financial hit over the closure, and, like other businesses, is unsure how much visitation will be reduced even after they reopen their doors.
