The Universal Beijing Resort announced on Sunday morning that it has started its emergency plan for epidemic control and prevention which means the resort will close temporarily starting on May 1 (Sunday).

"To ensure the health and safety of the employees and visitors of the theme park, the resort decided to close its resort on Sunday. For visitors whose trips will be affected, they can either receive a refund for the tickets or reschedule their visit to another date at no cost," said the authority of the resort on its official Wechat account.

The resort will conduct mass nucleic acid testing for all its staff and start disinfection work in all its areas under the guidance of the city authorities.

The resort, which opened in September 2021, includes a CityWalk, two hotels and the Universal Studios theme park.

The suspension comes with the increasing number of COVID-19 cases that have been recently reported in the days since April 22 in the capital.

Beijing reported 59 new locally transmitted confirmed cases and eight asymptomatic carriers between 3 pm on Friday and 3 pm on Saturday, which means the city's total infections hit 295 since April 22 and involve 13 districts, according to the Beijing CDC on Saturday.

The city has tightened all measures including suspending dine-in service in restaurants and several rounds of mass nucleic acid testing for residents to control the spread of the virus.
