ULAN BATOR, May 1 (Xinhua) -- The municipal government of Mongolia's capital Ulan Bator has reopened cultural and sports centers, relaxing restrictions imposed in late February, the city's mayor's press office said Friday.

"Based on instructions given by the central government and requests by citizens, mayor of the capital city Sainbuyan Amarsaikhan on Thursday issued a decree on reopening cultural and sports centers, such as sports halls, swimming pools, dance clubs, and training centers in the city from May 1," the mayor's press office said in a statement.

Visitors to reopened centers must wear masks, while children under the age of 12 will not be permitted entry, it added.

Ulan Bator, home to more than half of the country's population of 3.2 million, is the most densely populated city in Mongolia.

The country has reported 38 cases of COVID-19 as of Friday. All confirmed cases, including four foreign nationals, are imported, with no local transmissions reported so far. Enditem
