48-hour negative test for tourist spots
Buckle up. Here we go again. China has seen multiple new records for daily COVID cases recently and the count is also on the rise in Shanghai.
As the case count climbs, tourist spots and cultural areas now require a 48-hour negative nucleic acid test for entrance. Pending test results and on-the-spot rapid antigen tests are no longer accepted. These new regulations apply to the following areas:
·A-Level Tourist Attarctions
·Performance and Entertainment Venues
At Least The Testing is Still Free
One good thing though, free PCR testing in Shanghai has been extended through the end of the year. We still gotta take ’em, but at least we don’t have to pay for ’em – yet.
Like always, rules and regulations will be adjusted according to the ever-changing nature of the pandemic.
