To further prevent and control the spread of novel coronavirus during the Spring Festival travel rush, Southwest China's Guizhou province updated its policy for people arriving from abroad.

According to the new rules, all people coming to Guizhou from abroad should undergo 14 days of quarantine at a designated location and another 14 days of health monitoring at home.

They will also receive five nucleic acid tests: one test on the day of entering China or the following day, one test on the third to the seventh day of the quarantine period, and once each on the 14th day, 21st day and 28th day of quarantine.

Those entering China through cities outside Guizhou province and who quarantined for less than 14 days should resume isolation upon entering Guizhou

During the first seven days of health monitoring at home, people should not leave their homes, join any gatherings except those with family members, or have contact with people other than family members.

During the last seven days of health monitoring at home, people can leave their homes if necessary, but they should protect themselves and avoid large gatherings and public transportation.

Illegal immigrants will be dealt with in accordance with the law after quarantine procedures.

People coming to Guizhou from Macao can be exempted from the 14-day quarantine requirement. To receive the exemption, people from Macao must be free of COVID-19 and possess a negative nucleic acid test issued within seven days, have had no close contact with confirmed cases and have no symptoms of the disease. They should also have no travel history to overseas destinations within 14 days of entering the Chinese mainland.
