Qingdao, a coastal city in east China's Shandong Province has taken a string of measures to enhance risk assessment and port quarantine, strictly implementing information registration, temperature monitoring and isolation for all visitors.

It’s reported that starting Monday, all overseas visitors will be transported to their accommodations despite those who need isolation or further medical observation. For those who live in the coastal city, they are required to go through a 14-day home isolation. For those who come for a business trip or any temporary visit, the city government will arrange them to stay at designated hotels.

The enhancement of prevention measures, though not mentioning the specific name of any country, is reportedly in response to a surging number of cases of COVID-19 in South Korea and increasing number of bookings from the country to the coastal city.
