Coronavirus Outbreak – Update for Members

31st Jan 2020

As you know the Coronavirus outbreak in mainland China is in the national news. Marketing Manchester is working closely with VisitBritain and Manchester Airport to monitor the developing situation.

This is a busy time for Chinese visitors to Manchester due to the Chinese New Year period. At present, the Chinese government has required all group travel to cease until the end of February, and we anticipate travel agencies to cancel group bookings up until March.

VisitBritain continue to provide updates on their website and government advice is regularly updated here.

Public Health England has released the posters below.
