Shenzhen News Network reported that the COVID-19 prevention control headquarters of Bao’an District issued the following notice on August 7. Here it is translated below:

  “The current COVID-19 situation abroad is severe and complicated, and local clusters of epidemics triggered by imported cases have occurred in many provinces and cities in China. In order to resolutely and effectively block the spread of the epidemic and protect the health and safety of the general public, combined with the actual situation of Bao’an District’s epidemic prevention and control work, the relevant measures to further strengthen the prevention and control of the epidemic in Bao’an District are hereby announced as follows:
