Starting Saturday, Shanghai's tourist spots and cultural facilities like libraries require a 48-hour negative nucleic test report as it tightens up COVID curbs amid rising caseloads.
Proof of sample-taking in the past 24 hours is not valid for entry, and an on-the-spot antigen test can no longer replace the 48-hour negative nucleic acid test report as well, according to the latest requirements ordered by Shanghai's cultural and tourism authorities.
Performance and entertainment venues, A-level tourist attractions, museums, art galleries, libraries and Internet bars are included.
The Shanghai Administration of Culture and Tourism said the latest measure is based on the current COVID-19 prevention and control situation of the city, and will be adjusted based on the development of the pandemic.
Senior citizens or children without smart phones need to use the paper versions of their Suishenma health code and ID card for certification.
The reopening date is yet to be decided.
