Southwest China's Guizhou province recently upgraded its COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control measures and advised residents not to leave the province unless strictly necessary.
Due to the latest COVID-19 outbreaks in some cities, Guizhou has advised residents to protect themselves and avoid crowded areas when traveling outside the province.
The outbreaks are caused by the Delta variant, which can spread more rapidly, replicate quickly in human bodies, and take a long time to treat, which makes it difficult to control.
Everybody traveling to Guizhou from cities and prefectures with reported COVID-19 cases within the past 14 days must present a negative nucleic acid test report from within the past 48 hours, and must receive one more nucleic acid test within 24 to 48 hours of arriving in Guizhou.
Those with no nucleic acid test report must receive a nucleic acid test at their first stop in Guizhou, and receive another test within 24 to 48 hours after arriving. After receiving a negative result, they can continue their trip but must take self-protection measures, avoid crowded areas, and avoid using public transport.
Those who have been in contact with people with COVID-19 must report to their local communities, take a nucleic acid test, and be quarantined.
All people traveling to Guizhou from other areas must monitor their health conditions for 14 days and if they notice any symptoms, they should visit the nearest fever clinic or designated medical institution immediately, wearing a mask and avoiding public transport.
People also must continue wearing masks, washing their hands regularly, avoiding crowded areas, and receiving COVID-19 vaccines to help control the virus.
