Shanghai Book Fair postponed

THE annual Shanghai Book Fair, scheduled to be held between August 11 and 17, has been postponed due to the latest outbreak of coronavirus cases in China.

The organizer said the postponement of exhibitions and activities at the main venue and other places was necessary to prevent the gathering of people and protect public health.

The new date for the fair is not yet confirmed but will depend on the status of the outbreak.

Shanghai authorities have taken stronger and stricter measures to curb the latest resurgence of COVID-19. The city’s culture and tourism administration yesterday ordered cultural and tourist spots to impose strict reservation, registration, temperature and health QR code checks, and control the number of visitors.

They should ensure that visitors’ information can be tracked via health QR code, identity card, or reservation and registration, the administration said.

Security at indoor venues should be stepped up to remind tourists, visitors and audience members to wear masks properly.

Travel agencies and online travel operators have been banned from organizing tours to high- and medium-risk regions or conducting related air ticket and hotel business.

Cultural and tourism authorities at the district level and working units should enhance communication with health authorities.

Authorities will step up inspections at cultural and tourist venues, including theaters, entertainment areas, hotels, Internet cafes and scenic spots.
