Beijing raised its public health emergency response from the third to the second level due to the new cluster of local COVID-19 infections and the number of confirmed cases in the city exceeding 100 over the past five days, said Chen Bei, deputy secretary-general of Beijing municipal government, on Tuesday night at a press conference.

 

All the new cases are related to the Xinfadi wholesale market in Fengtai district. The cluster of infections is believed to be associated with human-to-human transmission and contaminated objects, Chen said.

Beijing will strictly enforce epidemic prevention measures in farmers' markets, restaurants, and canteens, and strengthen monitoring. Employees in those places must wear masks and gloves.

Residents of Beijing's medium and high-risk areas, as well as those related to the Xinfadi market, should not leave Beijing. Other residents should not leave the city if the trip is not necessary.

 

Those who have to leave the city should first have negative nucleic acid test results no older than seven days.

Under Level II, Beijing reinstated closed managements on communities, required people to have their temperatures taken, register with the entrance guards, and check health codes before entering the closed communities. Communities, sub-districts, streets in high/medium-risk areas would ban outsiders and cars from entering; and communities of high risk sub-districts would have closed-off management, allowing no one to leave.

Beijing's education authority announced on Tuesday night that all students in primary, junior high and senior high schools should stop on-campus classes starting on Wednesday and college students should stop returning to campus.

There is no need to stop production and shutdown businesses, but flexible working such as remote work and off-peak work should be encouraged.

Public places such as libraries, museums, art galleries and parks will implement time-limited reservations with visitor traffic no more than 30 percent.

 

The capital city demands certain team sports such as basketball, football and volleyball, to come to a halt. Venues of cultural entertainment, swimming pools and gyms will remain closed. All exhibitions, sports events and shows will be stopped.
