Shenyang, the capital city of Northeast China's Liaoning province, has implemented strict COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control measures on its public transportation system, according to a news conference held on Jan 11.
According to local authorities, all people in medium-risk areas and key controlled areas cannot leave the city. Those in other areas who really need to leave the city must show a certificate of a negative nucleic acid test issued within 72 hours (test results from massive testing are useless).
Public transport such as the subway, buses, tramcars and taxis must be disinfected regularly, and drivers and other staff members need to wear masks and protective gloves. These workers also need to report their health conditions daily.
All passengers should wear masks and show their health codes before taking public transport, according to authorities.
Also, all people at the airport, railway stations and bus stations need to scan a health code, have their body temperature measured and present their nucleic acid test certificate to be checked. Those without certificates issued within the past 72 hours cannot pick up passengers at transport hubs and stations.
