SNH48 officially announced on July 31st, 2021 that all fans from Jiangsu Province (or fans who have passed through) would be temporarily banned from the Xingmeng Theater in Shanghai due to a surge of Covid-19 cases in that region.
It is reported by some fans that one person has already been removed from the theater once it was discovered his identification placed his residence within the affected area. All fans impacted by this decision will have any ticket purchases refunded.
Although this announcement technically only applied to shows on July 31st and August 1st, fans are speculating to see if the ban might be extended to the upcoming SNH48 Group 8th General Elections which is less than one week away.
Stay tuned for updates!
