Shenyang, the capital city of Northeast China's Liaoning province, has tightened its pandemic prevention and control measures due to recently confirmed locally transmitted COVID-19 cases.
According to the municipal culture, tourism, radio and television bureau, cultural venues in the city -- including museums, art galleries, libraries, cultural centers, theaters and internet cafes -- will limit their number of visitors, not exceeding 50 percent of the approved number.
In addition, visitors need to make an appointment in advance and have their body temperature measured and health code inspected upon arrival. Masks will have to be worn during the visits.
Cultural venues should be disinfected regularly, and public areas and facilities should be systematically cleaned. According to the bureau, venues located in medium-risk areas will be temporarily closed, and cultural activities will be canceled.
A-level scenic spots should also improve their emergency plans for pandemic prevention and control, and the number of visitors should be limited below 50 percent of capacity. Scenic spots in medium-risk areas will also be temporarily closed.
Visitors staying at star-rated hotels in the city should undergo real-name registration, receive temperature measurements and show their health codes. Hotels should disinfect public areas regularly and strengthen food safety management, especially for cold-chain products.
Travel agencies in the city should not send tour groups to high and medium-risk areas in the country.
The bureau also called for more high-quality digital cultural and tourism products and services for residents.
