Shanghai parks have adopted a “location code” that will require residents and tourists to scan and register to access them after they reopen, the city’s greenery authorities said on Friday.
By scanning the code, people will see their health status, including nucleic acid test results, verified and relevant information recorded automatically.
So far, 399 city parks and eight country parks have installed the code or amhenma health code checking machines, according to the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.
The code can be scanned via the Suishenban mobile app, WeChat or Alipay.
Meanwhile, 286 parks that have eating places, cafes and tea rooms or restrooms will also have those places covered by the code.
Earlier, Shanghai culture and tourism authorities announced that A-level tourist attractions, hotels, theaters, museums, public libraries, art galleries, Internet cafes, community cultural activity centers, the chess and card rooms and Jubenshaor live role-playing venues across the city have also adopted the code.
The aim of the code is to improve the accuracy of health verification and admission registration, the Shanghai Culture and Tourism Administration said.
