Coronavirus Update: Beijing Will Quarantine All Overseas Arrivals
Updated on

Beijing will quarantine all travelers from overseas, including Chinese citizens, at designated locations for 14 days as the government shifts its focus to limiting imported coronavirus cases.

From midnight on Monday, all new arrivals will be kept under observation for two weeks, Beijing’s municipal government said in a statement late Sunday afternoon. That means even those who live in the city will not be allowed to return home except under “special circumstances,” it said. They will also have to cover the cost of their quarantines.
