Shanghai to Reopen More Economic Activity in July

Shanghai, China’s major financial hub, will gradually reopen its economy, beginning with museums, art galleries, and scenic spots in July, according to the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture and Tourism on Wednesday.

The city will progressively reopen movie theaters and entertainment venues beginning July 8, as Shanghai has already ended a two-month city-wide lockdown since June 1.

Earlier on Tuesday, Shanghai Disneyland announced its reopening after a three-month hiatus, after the Chinese authorities eased additional Covid-related restrictions.

In accordance with Beijing rules, Shanghai Disney Resort said that the park would restart operations “with limited daily capacity and enhanced health and safety protocols”.
