Beijing lowers risk level
Beijing lowered its public health emergency response from the second to the third level on Monday after the assessment of the capital’s COVID-19 epidemic situation by experts, said Chen Bei, deputy secretary general of the Beijing municipal government, at a news conference on Sunday.
Under the lowered level, public transportation, as well as other public areas, will continue to implement code inspections and body temperature checks.
People should continue to wear masks in crowded areas or closed places.
Meanwhile, parks, scenic spots, gyms, libraries and museums will be allowed to accommodate up to 50 percent of their maximum visitation capacities.
Conferences with attendance of no more than 500 will be allowed to be held as long as emergency plans are well prepared.
Sports arenas and cinemas will gradually open after assessment.
