Beijing to step up epidemic prevention, control
Beijing will further tighten epidemic prevention and control measures after a recent resurgence of COVID-19 infections, the municipal epidemic prevention and control headquarters said at a news conference on Thursday.
Beijing would implement up to 21 days of health observation and monitoring for people from high-risk and medium-risk areas for COVID-19.
The country would also step up the screening of those entering the city for medical treatment from areas with reported COVID-19 cases.
Beijing would halt the approval of new large-scale commercial performances, mainly those held in stadiums and gymnasiums.
It also postponed all approved performances not yet held.
Beijing would also strictly manage group travels in and out of the city.
In late July, Beijing reported a locally-transmitted confirmed COVID-19 case, the first in months.
Since then, sporadic cases had been reported in the past few days. (Xinhua/NAN)
