As spread of the virus has significantly slowed in the region, Institutions in the countries have tentatively announced plans to reopen their doors, while others have returned to normal operating hours, albeit under strict health measures.
Though, visitors should not expect business as usual, as the museum has ramped up its health and safety precautions, which includes daily disinfection protocols as mandated by the government, among other practices. A spokesperson for the Power Station of Art said that they have also prepared a temporary quarantine area on every floor in case of any emergencies. All visitors must have their temperature taken, as well as present their ID card and registered health code, before entering.
Additionally, both Shanghai museums have limited the amount of visitors to the museum. The Power Station will only allow 500 daily visitors, and all tickets must be booked in advance on the Chinese social media site WeChat. The Shanghai Museum also requires advance bookings on WeChat, and has limited daily occupants to 300 at a time. Visitors at both museums will be required to keep a five-foot distance from one another and wear protective masks while in the galleries. Most other art institutions in mainland China remain closed for now.
