Though there has been an overall decline of reported cases of COVID-19 infection in Beijing, it seems to be too soon for the capital's officials to take any chances yet. Over the recent weeks, numerous local venues have been ordered to impose stringent safety measures to keep all gatherings in public at bay, from restaurants barring group dining, to grocery stores advising customers to keep distance (at least one-metre) from each other. Now, the city’s parks have also followed suit. (Photos: Time Out)

In Summer Palace, drop-in visits are no longer accepted, as a reservation is required for entry and must be made at least one day in advance. To secure a spot, visitors must go to the site's WeChat account (ID yiheyuan_china), and then choose a time they wish to enter the next day – either morning or afternoon, according to Summer Palace's WeChat, though apparently only 5,000 tickets are up for grabs for each time window.

Meanwhile, it’s also required local cinema operators to offer individually separate seatings for movie-goers when cinemas resume operation again, though not giving any specific dates to when it will occur.
