Travel agencies and online tourism companies in China have been asked to immediately suspend trans-provincial group tours, air ticket and hotel reservation services once there are high- and medium COVID-19 risk areas in the provinces, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MCT).

Such tours will resume after the high- and medium-risk areas in the affected provinces are cleared, said Hou Zhengang, an official with the MCT, at a press conference on Thursday.

As the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday and the National Day holiday draw near, the MCT has asked localities to take strict measures to guard against possible imported COVID-19 cases, Hou added.
