The city hosting most of the skiing and snowboarding events in the Beijing Winter Olympics will close its ski resorts to tourists from January 4th to allow for preparations and the smooth running of the Games that begin a month later, a local government notice said on Thursday.
Zhangjiakou, around 200 km north west of the Chinese capital in Hebei province, will play host to the cross-country skiing, ski jumping, biathlon and snowboarding competitions in its Chongli district during the Winter Olympics, which take place from February 4th-20th.
It will also stage events during the Winter Paralympics in March. There will be “precise controls” in Chongli from January 4th until March 30th and its ski resorts will not accept tourists over that period, Zhangjiakou’s culture and tourism bureau said on its official WeChat account.
Scenic spots in other districts will be open as normal but visitors to Zhangjiakou will need to show proof on arrival of a negative coronavirus test within the previous 48 hours, the bureau added.
