Southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region has temporarily suspended the operation of all its scenic attractions to tourists over concerns regarding the spread of the novel coronavirus.
In line with Tibet’s second-level emergency response, the move serves as part of the region’s efforts to avoid gatherings of tourists and cross-infections to effectively block the spread of the novel coronavirus in Tibet, Tourism Development Bureau of the autonomous region said.
Given Tibet’s plateau climate and weak healthcare conditions, visitors who insist on travelling to the region will be isolated for a 14-day medical observation and pay for all the expenses themselves, it said. For people who have already purchased tickets for scenic spots in the region and wish to cancel their trip, local authorities should handle their refund requests free of charge, the bureau said, adding that tourist attractions will not open until further notice.
