2020/04/24

On the afternoon of 23 April, the Beijing Leading Group on COVID-19 Response held its 57th meeting and the 23rd meeting of the municipal inter-agency mechanism for entry management.

The meeting underscored the importance of keeping relentless efforts on COVID-19 containment, looking out for risks and loopholes and shoring up weak links. Regular containment measures should be implemented in a more targeted and effective way to forestall any resurgence of infections, while advancing all-round resumption of economic activities and restoring the normal order of life and work.

The meeting stressed the need to ramp up the nucleic acid test capacity more rapidly and expand the coverage of nucleic acid and antibody tests. Regular control measures will be instituted for arrivals in Beijing. Solid and rigorous control measures should be enforced throughout the May Day holiday. Parks and scenic sites should strictly implement containment measures, including requiring advance booking for admission, capping the number of visitors and spacing them out to avoid overcrowding. Shopping malls and supermarkets must maintain measures such as customer number limits, temperature test at the entrance and the one-meter distancing lines.

The meeting underlined the need for targeted control measures in residential communities. Neighborhoods and villages should strictly enforce the restrictive protocols including information registration and health code checks with visitors. The use of "Beijing Health Kit" app will be further encouraged. Residential communities should strengthen management on home observation and the entry of service providers such as couriers, realtors, renovation workers and housekeepers.
