SHANGHAI (Reuters) - The government of Shanghai has permitted companies to resume normal operations without first notifying authorities, except in certain industries, according to an official social media post from the city.

The statement comes as Shanghai, along with most other Chinese cities, steadily ease the restrictions put in place to fight the coronavirus as the epidemic continues to subside in the country.
