Those entering China via Shanghai have been ordered to be put under strict observation for seven days after 14 days of quarantine in designated hotels, the municipal anti-epidemic authority said Monday.
Those with Shanghai as their destination and a fixed residence in the city with only one person or a family have been asked to “not leave their home unless necessary” during the 7-day quarantine.
Others will be transferred to hotels designated for observation for 7 days after being released from the 14-day quarantine, the authority indicated.
In addition to temperature checks twice a day, they will be tested for COVID-19 on the second and seventh day during observation week.
The measures will come into force from January 25th to March 31st.
