Tourism in risky areas.

If symptoms such as cough and fever occur during the travel itinerary, stop the tour and seek medical treatment in time.

  On the 17th, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism held a regular press conference for the third quarter of 2021.

A reporter asked: Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day "double festivals" are approaching, and an epidemic has occurred in Fujian. What measures has the Ministry of Culture and Tourism taken to prevent and control the epidemic?

  In this regard, Hou Zhengang said that the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day "Double Festival" holidays are coming soon, and the number of tourists will increase.

In response to the current situation of epidemic prevention and control, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism attaches great importance to and actively responds. In accordance with the decisions and arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, it insists on making epidemic prevention and control the top priority of its work, focusing on the following four aspects:

  One is to strictly do a good job of external defense input.

We will not resume inbound and outbound team tours and "air tickets + hotel" services for travel agencies and online travel companies for the time being.

Suspend the new approval of foreign-related, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan-related commercial performance activities (except for those with cast members already in the country).

  The second is to strictly implement the "fuse mechanism" for cross-provincial tourism operations.

For provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities) that have high-risk regions, travel agencies and online tourism companies will immediately suspend the operation of inter-provincial team tours and "air tickets + hotel" services in the province (regions, cities).

After the medium and high risk areas in the province are cleared, the inter-provincial tourism business activities will be resumed.

  The third is to strictly do a good job in the prevention and control of epidemics in all aspects of tourism.

Travel agencies are required to conduct safety risk assessments on tourism products, reasonably control the size of the team, and do a good job in the collection of tourist information, health inspections, and body temperature monitoring.

Strictly implement the epidemic prevention and control requirements of various places in transportation, accommodation, catering, tourism, shopping, etc., and make good epidemic prevention and control reminders for tourists in the links of riding, checking in, visiting, and dining.

  The fourth is to strictly implement the "limitation, appointment, and peak shifting" requirements for tourist attractions.

During the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays, more than 10,000 A-level tourist attractions across the country will be open normally.

In order to ensure the safe and orderly opening of tourist attractions, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has guided A-level tourist attractions under the leadership of the local party committee and government to reasonably control the upper limit of tourist reception, strictly implement the ticket reservation system, and ensure that tourist information can be queried and tracked.

Urge tourist attractions to strictly implement requirements such as code scanning registration and temperature measurement, and guide tourists to implement the "one-meter line" and standardize the wearing of masks and other prevention and control measures.

Strictly implement the prevention and control requirements for key venues such as performing arts in scenic spots, strengthen sanitation management, strengthen ventilation and disinfection, and guide passenger flow for projects and places where tourists are likely to gather to prevent instantaneous gathering of tourists.

  In addition, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has revised and issued guidelines for the prevention and control of epidemics in theaters and other performance venues, Internet service venues, entertainment venues, and travel agencies in accordance with the relevant documents of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council, further detailing normalized prevention and control measures and requirements. All types of cultural and tourism business units will implement the guidelines in accordance with the guidelines.

  Hou Zhengang reminds tourists and friends who are going to travel during the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays: pay close attention to the domestic epidemic situation and changes in medium- and high-risk areas, and do not travel to medium- and high-risk areas.

During the travel itinerary, it is necessary to fully understand and consciously abide by the prevention and control requirements such as checking the health code, temperature measurement, and standard wearing masks, wash hands frequently, ventilate frequently, and develop the good habit of "one-meter noodle".

When symptoms such as cough and fever appear, stop visiting and seek medical attention in time.
