SeaWorld to close all theme parks due to coronavirus

SeaWorld will close all of its theme parks to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The park will be closed beginning on Monday and remain closed through the rest of the month.

The closure announcement comes on the heels of similar announcements from Disney and Universal Orlando.

SeaWorld has said earlier Friday that it was planning to stay open.

Disney World will be closed March 16, and stay closed through the end of the month.

Disney Cruise Line will also suspend all new departures beginning on Saturday through the end of the month.
