Guangdong province has reported 2,808 new cases of COVID-19, 2,637 of which were in Guangzhou. 

Today, November 9, 2022, marks the third day in a row that the provincial capital has broken its own record for the highest number of new infections in one day.

At 3 am this morning, Liwan District announced it would be strengthening pandemic prevention and control measures across the entire district, starting from 9 am. At 4pm, Panyu District also announced that they would be implementing similar measures. 

Although residents who are not in high-risk areas can leave their homes (and therefore go to work if their office is open) the following pandemic prevention and control measures have been implemented in both districts:

  • Do not leave your home unless necessary.

  • Do not congregate or meet in groups.

  • Residential areas (buildings), urban villages, industrial parks and commercial buildings to implement temperature checks, code scanning and a negative 24-hour nucleic acid test result must be presented upon entry.

  • All non-essential businesses to close and those who can work from home should. 

  • All colleges and universities, vocational colleges and technical colleges should implement ‘closed management.’

  • Primary and secondary schools and kindergartens should suspend offline teaching.

  • Off-campus training institutions should suspend offline teaching.

  • Both districts will undergo daily nucleic acid testing until the lockdown is lifted.  

To reiterate: unless you are in a mid-risk area, high-risk area or temporary control area, it is still possible to leave your house but you should only do so if absolutely necessary.

In Haizhu, the city's worse affected district, some households have been issued 通行证 (tongxing zheng). The passes allow one person per household to leave in order to buy essentials.
