The Health Bureau’s (SSM) Control of Communicable Diseases and Surveillance of Diseases Department Coordinator Leong Iek Hou announced that the Macao government on Monday lifted its quarantine requirement for all arrivals who have been in Beijing within the 14 days prior to their entry into Macao, after considering that the Beijing municipal authorities have implemented “very tough” measures to bring its COVID-19 epidemic under control.
The Macao government imposed its 14-day quarantine on arrivals from Beijing around the middle of last month when the COVID-19 epidemic in the nation’s capital had become serious.
Leong also announced that arrivals who have been in Hubei province with the 14 days prior to their entry into Macao no longer need to show a medical certificate confirming that they have not been infected with the novel coronavirus disease – a measure which had been implemented since January.
