Except for some communities that need to continue health code checks on and registration of people coming to the community, strict management of most neighbourhoods will loosen, according to Guangzhou government’s ‘Notice on COVID-19 Prevention and Control’ released on May 18th.
In addition, with the proviso that epidemic prevention and control measures are fully implemented, Guangzhou will allow shopping malls, office buildings, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, and agricultural produce trading markets to fully open again.
Parks, tourist attractions, sports venues, theaters will also be reopened, but with a restricted flow of visitors, and reservations will continue to be essential. This is in line with current practice in libraries, museums, art galleries and other indoor venues. The city is also allowing necessary conferences and exhibitions to be hosted.
Moreover, Guangzhou is allowing all students return to school. The city's primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities will have staggered starts. Students currently overseas are not allowed to return to school until future notice is given, however.
