Beijing municipality has required people arriving in the city from other countries to undergo a self-paid 14-day concentrated medical observation from Thursday, as imported cases of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continue to increase.

According to the city's newly revised quarantine rules for border entries, only those aged above 70 or under 14, pregnant or with fundamental diseases that are not suitable for concentrated observation can apply for home observation.
The rules also require returnees entering China through ports outside of Beijing to report their schedules and information to their Beijing employers and residential communities before arrival, and also be subjected to the observation rules.
