After a two-month citywide lockdown that was lifted on June 1, Shanghai authorities say they have finally “declared victory” against the latest round of COVID-19, following two consecutive days of zero new infections reported in the city.
Shanghai is now to gradually reopen museums, art galleries and all types of indoor and outdoor A-level tourist attractions across the city from July 1, according to English language state-owned newspaper, Global Times.
Cinemas and venues will gradually reopen to the public from July 8.
At present, 67 out of 134 A-level scenic spots in Shanghai have been reopened.
The Shanghai Municipal Health Commission said on June 29 that there were no new locally confirmed cases or asymptomatic infections in the city on June 28, noting that the city has not had any new cases or infections for two consecutive days.
Local authorities reminded the public to follow necessary epidemic prevention and control measures.
The Shanghai Disney Resort has also reopened on June 30 - tickets have been available for sale from June 29. Strengthened health and safety measures have been introduced at the resort since the reopening.
