There have been cases in Beijing and across the country in which inbound travelers were confirmed as COVID-19 patients after 14 days of isolated observation.
Beijing has required inbound travelers to undergo health monitoring for seven additional days following 21 days of medical observation.
Anti-epidemic management at the designated quarantine venues will be further strengthened and nucleic acid tests targeting related personnel and surroundings will be conducted more frequently.
There have recently been cases in Beijing and other cities across the country that inbound travelers confirmed as COVID-19 patients after 14 days of isolated observation, which led to a rebound in domestic cases.
In response to the situation, Beijing earlier this month extended the COVID-19 observation period for inbound travelers to 21 days following sporadic locally transmitted cases.
