Top tourist resorts in the city of Huanggang in central China's Hubei Province will start offering free tickets to medical staff from Shandong and Hunan provinces based on a cross-provincial partnership in their efforts to curb the epidemic.

A total of 1,240 medics from the two provinces rushed to Huanggang to help treat COVID-19 patients. In return, they have been (and will be) granted a "thank-you" card, allowing each of them plus one to three family members to enjoy limitless free tours of all the city's top tourist sites, the city government said on Monday.

Medical workers in the city can also enter the top-rated Class-A resorts free of charge.

Entrance fees will be waived for all natives who hold and can present an ID card registered in Shandong and Hunan, as well as all medical workers from other parts of Hubei, from the time the resorts reopen to the public up until December 31, 2021.

Medics sent to other parts of Hubei for the treatment of COVID-19 patients can also enjoy limitless free tours of the resorts and bring one family member by December 31, 2024, according to the government.

Huanggang has 67 Class-A resorts, including the magnificent base of the Dabie Mountains which sits at the juncture of Hubei, Anhui and Henan.

Neighboring the provincial capital Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, Huanggang has been one of the worst-hit cities ever since the epidemic started. As of Sunday, Huanggang had reported 2,907 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
