Universal Studios Hollywood is falling in line with Disneyland as it announces it too will close due to concerns over the coronavirus.

The theme park released the following statement:

The health and safety of our team members and guests is always our top priority. Out of an abundance of caution and in response to the guidance provided by the California Department of Public Health, Universal Studios Hollywood will temporarily close beginning Saturday, March 14. The theme park anticipates reopening on March 28 as we continue to monitor the situation.

Universal CityWalk will remain open. We will provide timely updates as conditions evolve.

The Universal and Disney theme parks’ call to close up shop for a spell come less than a day after California Gov. Gavin Newsom heavily recommended no gatherings of more than 250 people in the Golden State.
