As of midnight Saturday (March 21), all passengers, both Chinese and foreign, arriving from overseas in Guangdong, are now required to comply with 14-day quarantine measures. The policy excludes residents of Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan who have not traveled overseas within the last 14 days but includes arrivals from other provinces in China who have travel histories abroad over the last 14 days.
Those required to comply with home-based or centralized quarantine and medical observation measures will need to foot the bill for their own lodging and catering expenses.
