Beijing Railway Authorities: Ticket Purchase of High-risk Groups Prohibited and NAT-negative Reports within 7 Days Required for Outbound Travels

2020/06/24

At a press conference on COVID-19 response held on the afternoon of 23 June, Cui Wei, Director of the Passenger Transport Section of the COVID-19 Response Office of China Railway Beijing Group, stressed that various response measures are now in place to cut the transmission and prevent the spread of the virus from Beijing. Valid train tickets entering and leaving the city purchased before 24:00, 16 June can be refunded free of charge, and tickets are no longer allowed to be sold to high-risk groups. In addition, Beijing railway authorities have stepped up pre-boarding checks on the body temperature and NAT reports of passengers, and are strictly monitoring the health conditions of on-board travelers.

As the rapidly improved NAT capacity in Beijing has made the tests more accessible, Beijing railway authorities will tighten control over outbound trips. Starting from 0:00, 23 June, all railway stations in Beijing will check and verify NAT reports of outbound passengers without exception, and those who fail to present a negative report issued within the past seven days will be dissuaded from boarding the train.
