SHANGHAI1 (Reuters) – Shanghai will move into a normalized epidemic-control phase from Wednesday and will allow malls and shops to reopen and people in “low-risk” areas to return to work, city officials said on Tuesday.
Railways will also resume normal operations and the number of domestic flights to the city will increase, vice mayor Zong Ming told an online press conference, adding that they will also look to adjust passenger load factors.
Public venues, however, will still need to cap people flows at 75% of capacity and people will need to show a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours to enter.
The city announced an end to its two-month lockdown on Monday.
