No more test checking for public transport or outdoor venues in Shangai...

You are no longer required to show a PCR test report to take the Metro, buses, ferries and public transportation in Shanghai, nor to enter local parks and other outdoor public venues, city authorities have announced.

A 48-hour negative PCR test report will, however, still be required to enter restaurants, bars, malls, shops, supermarkets, wet markets, beauty parlors, hair salons, massage parlors and other commercial venues.

Citizens are still required to scan venue codes, and should keep wearing masks, maintain social distance and ensure personal sanitation, as well get their COVID vaccines as soon as possible, authorities added.

Home quarantine in Beijing?

News outlet, 南都 (nandu) reports that some Beijing residential communities now allow certain groups of individuals, including the elderly and pregnant women, to do home quarantine should they test positive for COVID-19. 

成都商报 (Chengdu Shangbao) reports that Times Courtyard (时代庄园) – a residential community located in Beijing's Chaoyang district – recently reported a positive case of COVID-19.

However, the building in which the case was reported has not been declared a high-risk area, and the individual infected with COVID-19 has been allowed to quarantine at home. 

Furthermore, That’s spoke to Sophie Wang who works in Haidian district. She told us that a colleague of hers tested positive for COVID-19, and has also been allowed to undergo home quarantine. Her colleague's symptoms have so far included a fever.

At the moment, it seems that home quarantine for positive cases is becoming ever more common in the capital. However, we can’t yet say for sure that this will become standard across the city (or country). 

As always, we’ll keep you updated with the latest information.
