Beijing tightens quarantine rules for travelers from overseas: official media

BEIJING (Reuters) - Beijing’s city government is further strengthening quarantine rules for individuals who arrive in China from overseas, as the Chinese capital seeks to minimize coronavirus-related risks, Beijing Daily reported on Tuesday.

The paper, the official publication of the city’s Communist Party organization, said all people entering the Chinese capital will be subject to centralized quarantine and testing for the coronavirus.

The report also said those who enter the city and have traveled from overseas to China in the past 14 days will also be subject to centralized quarantine and testing for the coronavirus, which has killed nearly 3,300 and infected nearly 82,000 in mainland China.
