Attractions shut again in Shanghai
With a number of visitor attractions and worksites having reopened across China over recent weeks, authorities have decided to close indoor tourist attractions once again in Shanghai.
Having closed, reopened and now closed cinemas across the country in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, indoor attractions, including the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai Tower and Madame Tussauds, were ordered to close last Sunday (29th March).
Shanghai Tower first closed its observatory to visitors on 24th January, before reopening on 12th March, and closing again on Monday 30th March. Jin Mao Tower also reopened its observatory on 12th March, but also closed as of last Monday.
According to SHINE, a total of 25 indoor tourist attractions have been ordered to close their indoor sections from 30th March.
In addition, 37 outdoor tourist attractions with limited indoor space have been told to close indoor areas, including Shanghai Wild Animal Park, City Beach, and Chenshan Botanical Garden.
12 scenic areas that were scheduled to reopen soon have been ordered to delay, and venues that are yet to reopen have been told by authorities to remain closed.
Meanwhile, cinemas that had been reopening across China have now been closed.
The measures suggest that the Chinese Government is concerned about a potential second wave of Coronavirus infections.
At the end of March, China lifted the coronavirus lockdown in the province of Hubei, but not in the city of Wuhan. Tourist attractions were also reopening in Shanghai and Beijing.
Japan is also beginning to open theme parks and attractions, as well as businesses and schools, after Coronavirus resulted in closures through February and March 2020.
