The Chinese Embassy in the US urged travelers flying to China to strictly follow anti-epidemic rules such as a mandatory self-health monitoring for seven days ahead of a flight and strict self-quarantine for 48 hours before the flight to prevent them from getting infected.
 

On Saturday, the Chinese Embassy posted a notice on its website reminding would-be travelers going to China to carefully assess the urgency and necessity of international travel amid the epidemic, especially the possible economic losses caused by frequent flight "circuit-breaker" in recent days, and to remember "not to travel unless necessary."
 

At the same time, the embassy reminds passengers with urgent travel need to strictly follow the requirements issued by the Chinese Embassy and Consulate Generals in the US for testing. Passengers need to take health monitoring process seven days ahead of the flight after taking relevant tests in the location where they board the flight. They also need to strictly self-quarantine rules for 48 hours before the flight takes off in order to prevent contacts with the outside world.
 

Currently, the Omicron variant continues to ravage the US, where average daily infection is nearly 800,000 with more than 1,700 deaths in total, according to the data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the US.
 

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases imported from the US to China has risen sharply, and people who go out for sightseeing, shopping, or attending dinner parties after completing pre-travel tests are the main causes of infection, the Chinese Embassy in the US said in the statement.

The notice came after media reported that as many as 70 flights from the US to China have been canceled since the beginning of 2022 amid a growing number of COVID-19 cases in the US.
 

The Chinese Embassy stressed that it will verify through various channels whether passengers travelling to China strictly abide by relevant regulations, and a number of passengers have already been denied a "green code" for dishonest behavior, and some have even been held legally responsible.
 

中国驻美国大使馆发布重要提醒

当地时间1月15日,据中国驻美国大使馆官网消息,当前,新冠病毒奥密克戎变异毒株导致全美疫情形势持续高位运行,根据美疾控中心数据,全美日均感染接近80万例,死亡超过1700人。同时近期从美国输入中国的新冠确诊病例大幅上升,完成行前检测后仍然频繁外出观光、购物或参加聚餐等群聚性活动是导致感染的重要原因。
 

为保护中外乘客和航空公司乘务人员健康和生命安全,再次提醒拟赴华人员慎重评估疫情期间国际旅行的紧急性和必要性,特别是近期航班频繁熔断可能造成的经济损失,牢记“非必要,非紧急,不旅行”。确有紧急旅行需要的乘客,请务必严格按照驻美使领馆发布的要求进行检测,尤其注意行前第7日检测后需留在赴华航班起飞地进行自我健康监测,临行前48小时检测后严格执行自我隔离,不与外界接触,以免染疫从而影响赴华行程。
 

驻美国使馆注意到,微博、微信等互联网社交平台已出现规避7日自我健康监测等要求的所谓“攻略”。驻美使馆郑重提醒乘客诚实守信申领健康码,驻美使领馆将通过各种渠道核实赴华乘客是否严格遵守相关规定。此前已有多名乘客因各类不诚信行为未获“绿码”,甚至有人被追究法律责任。
