At 3:30 p.m. yesterday we reported that you may have 28 days of quarantine when entering China via Hong Kong as policies were not yet in place to prevent a double quarantine (14 days in Hong Kong followed by 14 days in Guangdong) from happening. We also mentioned in that article that things can change daily, and today we have a perfect example of that as officials worked quickly to expedite the new processes while ensuring the integrity of proper safety protocols. Just hours after our article was published, the Guangdong government released the following information:

Effective 00:00 March 21st, the following passengers arriving into Guangdong are required to undergo 14 days of self-isolation at their place of residence, or designated venues, for medical observation, at their own expense:

  1. Those arriving into the province from any foreign country; 
  2. Those who arrive into Guangdong via Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan AND have been to any foreign country in the last 14 days;
  3. Those who arrive in Guangdong from other cities in mainland China AND have been to any foreign country in the last 14 days.

The above applies equally to foreigners and Chinese citizens.
