Changes to quarantine policies for regional travelers
Inbound travelers who arrive in Shanghai with final destinations in Jiangsu, Zhejiang or Anhui provinces can be quarantined in the city for three days and then transferred to their destinations for another 11 days of quarantine, the city’s authority on COVID-19 prevention and control said on Thursday.
On the fourth day of quarantine, specially-assigned persons from each province will pick up travelers in a special vehicle to prevent cross-infection of the coronavirus.
But if the person has tested positive for the virus, has suspected symptoms or has come into close contact with confirmed cases, they should be quarantined in Shanghai for treatment or further observation.
Other regulations remain unchanged.
