Tourism authorities in China have loosened restrictions on cross-provincial group travels for regions with no high or medium-risk areas for COVID-19, but called for strict implementation of precautionary measures.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued a renewed guideline for travel agencies on Tuesday allowing tour agencies and online travel enterprises to resume their cross-provincial travel businesses as well as ticket and hotel reservation services in provincial-level regions with no high or medium-risk areas.
