The China Tourist Attractions Association, together with 51 tourist attractions across China, issued a convention on strengthening epidemic prevention measures at tourist sites to provide visitors with a safe environment.

The convention is based on the National Health Commission’s policies on epidemic prevention and guidelines for resuming operations at tourist sites. It offers a total of nine suggestions and operational standards on issues such as equipment disinfection, staff health management, visitor flow and online information disclosure regarding epidemic prevention.

Big Data technology will be used at popular tourist sites to help better manage reservations. Tickets will be sold online to avoid face-to-face contact and gatherings of people at ticket offices, according to the convention.

Tourists will also be able to get epidemic prevention information at the sites through mobile apps.

The convention will help the recovery of culture and tourism industries, said Zeng Bowei, an official with the China Tourism Association.

The first batch of 51 tourist attractions includes 33 of China’s highest 5A-rated sites, such as Pingyao Ancient City, Mutianyu Great Wall and Oriental Pearl Tower.
