Beijing is tightening its hard-line Covid Zero rules, mandating that kids show a negative test result to enter parks in China’s capital. 

Children older than three will need to show a green health code on the system that controls people’s movements, as well as a negative Covid result no older than 72 hours, according to a statement from the Beijing Municipal Administration Center of Parks. Previously, kids were able to go to parks and other public places without getting their test results checked provided their parents met requirements for entry.
