Shanghai announced measures to gradually restore production and reopen to the public on June 1 as the city has effectively brought the current COVID-19 wave under control.

The Oriental Pearl TV Tower, one of Shanghai's most iconic attractions, was included in the first batch of A-level scenic areas in Pudong that have reopened their doors to the public. All the public areas in the scenic area have been disinfected and sterilized to ensure a safe and sound environment for visitors.

The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is allowed to receive visitors up to 50 percent of its maximum capacity. Visitors must wear face masks and everyone is required to present a negative nucleic acid test result taken within 72 hours and scan a venue QR code.

Jinqiao Park in Pudong also reopened to the public on June 1. Outdoor spaces are open to the public, but the children's playground, basketball court, and other indoor facilities will remain closed at the park.
