In order to reduce the risk of cross infections in crowded places, notices have been issued at several major scenic spots across China based on the requirements by the government in the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus.

The Palace Museum, Beijing

The Palace Museum has been closed since Jan 25, the first day of Spring Festival. The museum has refunded ticket fees to those who had bought them online. The reopening date has not yet been decided and it will be closed until further notice.

Huangshan Mountain Scenic Area, Anhui province

From April 15, the number of people allowed to enter the scenic area has been reduced to 15,000 per day-30 percent of its maximum capacity. Tourists need to purchase tickets online with their real names, and will need to show the e-tickets upon entry.

Tourists must also apply for health certificates online and scan a QR code for verification before entering the scenic spot. Each tourist group should have no more than 30 people.

Museum of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shihuang, Xi'an, Shaanxi province

The museum started allowing entry to individual tourists on March 25 and tourist groups are still not allowed. Ticket booths at the museum are closed and only online reservations are accepted.

Visitors can order tickets through its website or at its official WeChat account.

The maximum number of visitors at the museum should not exceed 8,000 daily and temporary closure measures should be enforced when the number of tourists exceeds the limit.

Tourists need to verify their identity and health information by scanning a QR code made by the municipal government and need to have their temperatures taken before entering the museum.

Visitors must keep a distance of more than 1.5 meters from each other. Tour guide services are suspended, but a self-service guide on its WeChat account is available.
