Less than a month after it re-opened its doors to parkgoers, Magikland announces today that they are temporarily closing the park starting today until December 13 after a staff tested positive of the corona virus disease.
“We wish to inform you that one of our park ride attendants has tested positive for COVID-19,” the park said in a statement published on its official Facebook page.
The staff according to the park’s statement is asymptomatic and is now on isolation in his residence. It added that the personnel’s exposure was from outside the park’s premises.
Reynaldo Bantug, President and CEO of Magikland, however, said that no parkgoers were exposed to the positive staff as he only came into contact with other Magikland staff during non-operating days of the park.
The exposed staff members will now undergo swab test to complete the contact tracing procedure and to ensure their health, Bantug added in the statement.
As a preventive measure and in accordance with the government’s safety standards, the management has decided to cancel this weekend’s operation until the results of all the swab tests are known and the concerned staff members are declared clear to resume work at the park.
Bantug said the park will be able to open again next weekend with the confidence that it is safe for everyone to enjoy.
