All overseas visitors attending the 3rd China International Import Expo (CIIE) in November must undergo a 14-day quarantine in designated hotels along with multiple tests, the city government announced on Sunday.
The attendees from abroad will be subject to the city’s strict “closed-loop” management, which has been proved effective in the management of overseas arrivals amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Since the city reported the first imported COVID-19 case on March 5, the most successful experience is the strict ‘closed-loop’ management, which will be applied to CIIE participants from abroad,” the city government said on its official WeChat account.
The overseas participants are also required to conduct a 14-day self-health observation before their entry to China.
Upon arrival, they must complete the health declaration as well as receive a temperature check and the nucleic acid test. Custom officers may board aircraft to conduct inspections.
Anyone with symptoms such as a fever or cough will be sent to designated hospitals by ambulance for further screening and treatment.
During the 14-day group quarantine at designated hotels, two additional nucleic acid tests will be conducted on the 5th and 12th days.
