2020/03/22

According to the Announcement on Further Strengthening the Measures to Prevent and Control COVID-19, made by the General Office of the Beijing Municipal Leading Group on NCP Prevention and Control, effective as of 19 March 2020, all inbound travelers arriving in Beijing from overseas will be transferred to designated sites for a 14-day medical observation, and expenses incurred during the period will be borne by the quarantined travelers themselves.

The measures also constitute more specific and strict criteria for applicants eligible for home observation, such as elders over the age of 70, minors under the age of 14, pregnant and postpartum women and those with underlying medical conditions. And individuals having obtained permission for home observation after strict assessment are also excluded. The Announcement requires people arriving in Beijing from other points of entry in China to inform their employers and residential communities in advance of their travel schedule and other relevant information. Upon arriving at the community, they should comply with control measures for overseas arrivals. Those who conceal the history of overseas travel or residence will be held accountable by law.

The Chinese Embassy also reminds the travelers to closely follow the updates issued by the the General Office of the Beijing Municipal Leading Group on NCP Prevention and Control, by visiting http://www.beijing.gov.cn/ or subscribing the WeChat public accounts "beijing_gov"(首都之窗) and "beijingfabu" (北京发布).

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
