Quantum error correction provides a convenient setup where bulk operators are defined only on a code subspace of the physical Hilbert space of the conformal field theory. I will first reformulate entanglement wedge reconstruction in the language of operator-algebra quantum error correction with infinite-dimensional physical and code Hilbert spaces. I will streamline my proof that for infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, the entanglement wedge reconstruction is identical to the equivalence of the boundary and bulk relative entropies. I will discuss its implications for holographic theories with the Reeh-Schlieder theorem.
