Stricter virus control rules required for Hohhot airport
Hohhot Baita International Airport – located in Hohhot, capital of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region – recently started implementing stricter epidemic prevention and control protocols, in view of the recent rebound of the novel coronavirus epidemic in many places in China.
According to information released by the Hohhot airport on Aug 2, passengers from any region with medium to high virus risk status must show their health code and a negative nucleic acid test report conducted within seven days. They must report their information at the first floor of the airport's domestic arrivals registration station and undergo a temperature check.
Passengers holding a green health code may leave as soon as completing the information report, while those with no green health code – that is, with a yellow or red code – must undergo unified management and control from the sub-district and county where they live after reporting the information.
A yellow or red health code indicates a person has been in contact with a confirmed patient or asymptomatic carrier, or has visited a medium or high-risk area.
Inbound passengers who have completed 14-day centralized quarantine at the first entry point and come to Hohhot later still need to be quarantined for another seven days.
Those meeting the requirements for being quarantined at home, may proceed to their residence. Those who don't meet the requirements, must receive centralized quarantine from the sub-district or county where they live.
All passengers must wear masks before entering the airport's terminal buildings, show their health codes and receive a temperature check.
