BEIJING - China's Ministry of Culture and Tourism on Monday called for efforts to strengthen the implementation of epidemic control measures at scenic spots during the five-day Labor Day holiday from May 1 to 5.

Tourism authorities nationwide have been told to set their capacity within a reasonable limit and continue carrying out advance ticket reservations.

Tourist destinations were asked to enhance ventilation and disinfection, and implement protective measures including mandatory wearing of masks.

Problems such as overcrowding at entrances of popular attractions and loose anti-epidemic measures were noticed, as people flocked into tourist spots during the first two days of the holiday, according to an official with the ministry.

The ministry also called on local tourism authorities, working with public security and transportation departments, to strengthen safety management at scenic spots.
