Update: 2020-03-24     Source: Guangzhou Command Center for COVID-19 Control and Prevention

Right now, we’re seeing COVID-19 outbreaks in many countries around the world. WHO announced that COVID-19 had become a global pandemic. In order to practically safeguard the safety and health of the public, in accordance with requirements rolled out by Guangdong Provincial Command Center for COVID-19 Control and Prevention, we have decided to strengthen the health service and health management for people returning to Guangzhou from overseas. We hereby notify the following matters:

I. If you returned to Guangzhou after 00:00, March 8 2020 from overseas (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) via Guangzhou Port; or if you had travelled to another country 14 days before you arrived in Guangzhou after 00:00, March 8 2020 and you had entered into China via ports in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan or ports outside of Guangzhou; you’re required to undergo quarantine and medical observation upon arrival either at home or at quarantine facilities regardless of your nationality. Workers from residential communities will provide health monitoring service to you. Anyone who are yet to be enrolled in a quarantine program will be quarantined at home or at quarantine facilities.

II. The quarantine period begins on the date of arrival into Guangzhou. You’re not allowed to go out during the quarantine period. Medical observation can be lifted 14 days later provided you are not showing any symptoms and have been tested negative in the second nucleic test. The cost of accommodation and food at quarantine facilities shall be born by yourself. If you violated home isolation regulations, you shall be transferred to quarantine facilities for medical observation and you will be held accountable for such violations.

III. By March 23, the aforementioned returnees must report their healthconditions to the health service and management staff of their residentialcommunities; or contact the designated health care institutions of the district (list is attached at the end of the notification); or call Guangzhou publichealth hot lines at 12320. Foreign nationals can call 960169 (Guangzhou Multilingual Services Platform) for translation services in English,Korean and Japanese. If you have not taken nucleic test after you entered into China, you’rerequired to take SARS-CoV-2 nucleic test and anti-body test free of charge.

IV. We urge the aforementioned returnees to follow the rules of community health service and management. Those who hide their travel history or try to escape quarantine, those who refuse to work with community health service and management staff, those who fail to apply for and those who refuse to take SARS-CoV-2 nucleic test or anti-body test, will be listed in the public credit information system and penalised for their behaviours. They will also be held legally accountable.
