Masks Now Required on Buses and Taxis in Sanya

As if you weren’t already wearing your mask, it’s now official that passengers and drivers must wear masks on public buses, tourist coaches, taxis and ride-hailing services. 

Banks and hospitals never curbed the use of masks, but expect that this new push will lead many malls and grocery stores to require masks and codes as well.

If passengers refuse to wear a mask, drivers have the right to refuse service. Passengers are encouraged to spread out on buses when possible to limit contact.

A recent surge in COVID-19 cases has caused all provinces to request that travelers stay in their own province and limit travel in order to prevent the further spread of cases. Many areas have increased COVID-19 prevention measures.

As of yet, Sanya’s officials have not required masks at all times neither in public nor on beaches, but authorities do encourage the use of masks when possible in order to limit possible spread.

If you’re looking for a new set of masks beyond the boring blue, head over to our latest article for new mask options, or revisit our earlier fashion spread on reusable masks here.

If you need to find a nucleic acid testing center near you, you can use this mini-program to find one no matter where you are in China. Additionally, Sanya’s municipality just recently issued a list of nine testing centers. Please note each clinic’s hours are different, with many opening at 8am and closing at 6pm and some closing on the weekends. Call ahead to be sure of opening hours.
