Central China's Hubei Province will only allow "travel services with prior reservations" during the upcoming five-day May Day holiday, as the province is on higher alert to prevent a resurgence of coronavirus cases, after it was battered by the outbreak in January and February. 

The culture and tourism department of the Hubei government on Saturday announced all scenic spots which have resumed operation will only accept tourists with prior reservations. Meanwhile, each scenic spot will only allow a flow of tourists that do not exceed 30 percent of the maximum capacity.

Also, scenic spots have launched phased tourist reservation schemes, in which visitors could make reservations through apps, websites, and telephone calls.

The culture and tourism department reminded that all residents with travel plans need to make prior reservations before coming to Hubei.  

Meanwhile, all travelers are still required to take strict prevention measures during their travelling in the province, including wearing masks, showing digital health codes, and keep social distancing rules.

As of Saturday, 266 of all the 421 A-level scenic areas in Hubei had resumed operations, the local newspaper Chutian Metropolis Daily reported.

Among the 12 of Hubei's 5A-level scenic spots, only one resort has not been reopened. Yellow Crane Tower will be opened to tourists on Wednesday after being closed for 98 days.
