  • Gutian Daoxiang restaurant at 269 Wujiang Lu in Jing'an District

Shanghai implements updated COVID policies...

The Shanghai Fabu official city WeChat account proclaimed yesterday that: "Shanghai Fully Implements the Requirements of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council and Further Optimizes Epidemic Prevention and Control Measures."

We like the sound of that. Music to our Shanghai ears.

Easing up of daily school testing...

Students in Shanghai schools will now be subject to nucleic acid tests every other day – Monday, Wednesday and Friday  rather than every day, the city government announced yesterday, as part of its updated COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

Testing requirements will be further adjusted according to the COVID situation, they added.

ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair suspended...

The 10th ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair at Shanghai Exhibition Center was suspended over the weekend, after it transpired that it had been visited by Saturday's new community case.

The art fair, which was scheduled to run until Sunday, featured 134 premier galleries from 36 cities in some 20 countries (before it was curtailed).

So that sucked.

48-hour test result now valid for transit...

One of the updated measures announced on Friday was that passengers to the Chinese mainland are now only required to present one negative nucleic acid test result issued within 48 hours.

Well, that test result from the original departure country is also valid for a transit country, as long as it is still within 48 hours when boarding the final flight to China. So, now no need to take another test and apply for new health code.

That, ladies and gentlemen, eliminates a whole lot of mafan for transit passengers to China.

Guangzhou numbers spike (again)...

Guangzhou reported 4,065 new cases of COVID-19 this morning, Monday, November 14, a jump of 412 from yesterday's 3,653.

It marks the fourth day in a row that COVID-19 cases have increased in the city, and the first time ever that Guangzhou has reported more than 4,000 cases in one day.
