Elderly people were seen exercising and playing games in Beihai Park on Wednesday, as the Beijing Centre for Disease Control dropped the mandatory use of masks for outdoor exercises.
The new guidelines allow Beijing residents to play contactless outdoor sports like badminton, tennis, ping pong or running without facial protection.
«When we are exercising, it is hard to breath with a mask. When... Еще we finish, we will wear the mask,» said Feng Jinsheng, a visitor.
Only 13 COVID-19 cases are being treated in Beijing, according to the authorities.
