Beijing will downgrade its public health emergency response to Level III from Level II from Monday, as zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported over the two incubation periods, effectively controlling the spread of the latest resurgence of epidemic within 40 days.

Chen Bei, Beijing municipal government's deputy secretary general, announced the decision at a press conference on Sunday afternoon, without wearing a face mask.

Travel websites saw a sevenfold increase in flight searches in and out of Beijing from the previous hour, after Beijing announced the change in emergency response. Ticket bookings from Beijing to Shanghai saw the biggest increase, according to media reports. The news are expected to push up some 250 million trips to and from Beijing.

Under Level III, Beijing will maintain visitor capacity restrictions of 50 percent at tourist attractions, museums, gyms and libraries. Exhibitions, sports events and other activities will be gradually resumed.

All arrivals from overseas still need to undergo isolation and observation at designated sites as well as nucleic acid testing. International flights to Beijing have to enter China through the designated first point of entry.

According to the Beijing municipal government, dark, damp underground spaces with poor ventilation will no longer be used as business and trade venues.

Beijing will strictly enforce prevention and control measures at food markets, restaurants, construction sites, factories and other key sites, and establish a system for monitoring environmental health at food markets and reporting symptoms to employees.

Beijing will strictly inspect and quarantine food at ports, and comprehensively strengthen supervision over imported cold chain food.

Temperature detection in public transport and health code checks in public places will be still strictly enforced.

Beijing hasn’t reported confirmed cases for 13 consecutive days since the new outbreak linked to the Xinfadi food market broke out on June 11.

A total of 335 confirmed local cases were reported in Beijing, with 132 in hospitals and 203 cured and discharged from June 11 to July 18, according to the Beijing Municipal Health Commission.

终于!北京降级了!

从7月20日零时起,北京重大突发公共卫生事件应急响应级别由二级调至三级。

在广泛使用北京健康宝登记验码的基础上,北京市将有序调整以下措施:

按照50%限流开放公园旅游景区和体育健身、图书馆、博物馆、美术馆等室内外场所。

在落实主办方主体责任、严格清洁消毒通风、保持社交距离、科学佩戴口罩、完备应急预案的情况下,可举办500人左右规模的会议,并可视情况动态调整会议规模。

经评估后逐步限流开放会展、体育赛事、演出活动和电影院。同时将根据疫情形势,动态调整防控策略。

从事医疗卫生、公共服务等高风险暴露人员必须佩戴口罩。通风不畅、阴暗潮湿的地下空间不再作为经营交易的场地。

虽然经过全市上下的共同努力,当前防控形势持续稳定向好,但大考还未到交卷时。必须慎终如始,始终保持警惕,坚持外防输入,内防反弹不放松,抓实抓细各项防控措施。大家要做好秋冬季可能出现疫情的应对准备。
