Shanghai Scraps Some Covid Test Requirements From Monday

  • Residents don’t need Covid results when using public transport
  • China shifts further from zero-tolerance Covid strategy

Shanghai said it will scrap Covid PCR test requirements in public transportation and outdoor venues across the city from Monday, in another major shift away from China’s zero-tolerance strategy amid protests over pandemic restrictions. 

Residents will no longer need to show that they’ve tested negative for Covid tests to enter subways, buses and parks, removing a requirement that’s been a major source of inconvenience for the public.
