The mausoleum of Qinshihuang, known for the famous army of Terracotta Warriors in Northwest China's Shaanxi province, reopened Friday after the COVID-19 resurgence in China suspended operations at the museum for over a month.

To visit Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum, tourists need to make a reservation online as the museum is operating at 30 percent capacity at this time, according to the museum.

The museum will not accept tour groups, and tourists from medium- and high-risk areas are also not permitted.

Museum operation was suspended in late July after sporadic locally transmitted COVID-19 cases were reported in several provinces of China.

Discovered in 1974, the army of Terracotta Warriors was built by Emperor Qinshihuang of the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), who unified China for the first time.

Other museums of the province, including the Shaanxi History Museum, have also reopened to the public recently.
