Universal Studios has reported a 2% fall in its quarterly earnings after the company reported a decline in attendance due to an illness.
The company’s results for the third quarter were adjusted down by 0.6% to $3.07 billion, according to an Investor Relations release.
The firm said that it had received a letter from the California Department of Public Health on Friday requesting the company to halt all future admissions to its Universal Studios California theme parks, and that it will seek to extend the stay of patients who have been in treatment in California.
Universal Studios is currently working on the new Star Wars movie, but it did not announce the movie’s release date.
The news comes amid ongoing concerns over the safety of the theme parks that are the site of Universal’s theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood, Florida.
